All 4 cars have walmart batteries. My honda atv also has one. The one kn the truck just hit the 5 year mark. The one in her car died in 2017. It was halfway through the warranty. When i took it in for an exchange, the price had been lowered. The idiot at the register couldn't figure out how to refund the price difference, so they refunded the old purchase price and resold me the replacement battery. What they failed to realize was in doing it that way, they restarted the warranty on the battery. I did not say anything lol

No, but an aftermarket company used to make them. According to the vendor I bought mine from, the company that made them went out of business and the chrome handles are no longer available.

I used to build equipment for battery plants. I also travelex to the plants for installation and service.Not many manufacturers. Wal-Mart, Duralst, Interstate and the rest come down the same lines. Interstates are charged at a slightly higher amperage, for a slightly longer time...

I've been told to make sure you get the one made by Johnson Controls if you buy a Walmart battery. That's what I'm running.

I will post their response when it comes in. (Good catch by the way)
I got a reply.

The Seller wrote that these are chrome.

Fuck. Scroll up, you loser. No effort on your part. That's why you don't have one already.
