Default Re: New Batteries

Every battery you can buy in the US today comes from one of three major or 5 smaller factories. Each of those factories can make cheap, medium and expensive product and slap on some dealer's label. Buying a certain brand is near meaningless, and has damn little to do with how long it will last. THAT's up to you, and depends on how you charge it and how you store it.

After you've found a few batteries that meet your spec's, compare warranties and weight. Somebody's experience in one corner of the country is of limited, anecdotal value. That same model from a store at another corner of the country will likely come from a different factory!
