This battery was purchased 7/12 to replace a Mopar original battery from 2004 that had outlasted any reasonable expectations, so on the general principle that nothing lasts forever it was retired to sit on a trickle charger in the garage and an old spare boat battery was turned in to buy the new car battery. In the same vehicle, under the same operating conditions this Everstart Maxx battery has lasted exactly 19 months. It has a shorted cell and won't hold a full charge and goes 2v low almost instantly. It's a little irritating that I've had to reinstall the 10 year old Mopar battery to drive to Walmart to exchange the new Eversmart Maxx battery. You'd think that the premium price would have included the better structure and chemistry that keeps PbS crystals from forming and shorting out the plates so quickly. Well, I'm just hoping they've gotten tired of making free exchanges and improved the product in the last year and a half, but I wouldn't recommend what I bought to anyone.
