The main difference in batteries that fit our cars is in the QC that goes into it; that's the big diff I see.
Here, it seems like most are Exide batteries, with other peoples names one them.
People try not to ship lead too far, so there tends to be a battery recycling/manufacturing facility close by.
If you properly maintain it, there's no reason not to get 10 years out of one.
I've posted long rants on battery care, so they should be easy to find, lol.
Full charge on a 10A charger overnight every 3 months. One that ramps down at the end is good.
Open caps and look at the level. You should do this every oil
change, and fill to the indicator. If you can't see an obvious indicator, look it up.
Fill with water After charge; unless the upper structure is exposed. If so, it may be toast.
If you run the battery down and have to jump start it, just hook the cable up, go bs for 10 minutes, and disconnect them and start your car.
You Have to refill the water in the battery after one of these events; they get freaking hot, and boil shit off.
That's why shit gets all rusted there; boiling battery juice, lol.
