Usually, in any particular area, there's a recycler of lead-acid batteries.

(Lead is expensive to ship...)

They usually belong to one of the big companies.

Exide owns the local one I know of.

Most of the batteries in a area come from this plant; different plastic, molds, etc. but the biggest difference is the testing.

The ones with the 5 yr warranty passed ALL the tests, lol.

The cheaper ones, not so much.

Red '96 Cougar XR-7 240k mi. '02 4R70W, PST DS : '03 PI engine, 04 maf, 24lb injectors, 2.5" exhaust, '02 4r70w + Jmod, DirtyD0g TC + cooler + 3/8" lines, 255 walbro fp. Alpine system.
Black '96 Cougar XR-7 (Lazarus) 210k mi PI Intake, '02 4R70W, Jmod, PST DS, GrogTune, Konis, Mark LCA+Poly, racecougar Custom Engine Chain, and JL and racecougar Bracing.

I'm not Human enough to be human; but I'm trying to fit in, and I'm learning to fake it.
