I have an Optima Red top that I bought 4 1/2 years ago and it has been great but you should be aware that it does have vents. On the opposite side of the male posts you will see round protrusions with a poress material inside them. These are the vents. I learned this from the Optima factory yesterday. I also learned that when you mount the battery the factory recommends that these vents be mounted so that they are toward the top. Sooooo when they say that the battery can be mounted in any position this is true but you may experience some acid leakage at the bottom of the battery if you mount the battery with the vents at the lower part of the battery as I did.
