    yellow tops are good batts.

    red tops are IMO, kinda worthless because you can get a standard lead acid filled battery from most places for MUCH cheaper.

    Yellows and Blues are good. I have a redtop, and I have NO problems with it, and its over 2 years old. I was told the reds lose charge fast, and when they do, they never hold a full charge like they are supposed to. Like I said, I never had anything happen with mine, yet.
