about auto batteries
How do they do it? I was on a seldom used county road yesterday planting political signs. Stopped, shut off engine of my old Dodger truck, got out, planted sign, go in and truck was dead. As in ded-ded. Called AAA for a tow. About an hour later (from ten minute distance) they sent a jeep. Oh, well. They guessed right, my battery was kaput. Service guy checked the date, it is five years old. And, looking back, I got a feeling it is five years to the day and hour I bought it. Oh. well. I'm heading to Wally World shortly to get a replacement. I have checked some prices. Batteries have gotten really expensive lately. About a C-note to replace this one. I ain't a happy camper especially since this comes at a bad time in the budget cycle. BTW, I have bought a lot of batteries over the years and heard all the stories. The current, ded, one is an Interstate, much more expensive than Wal-Mart. It worked and lasted five years. I have had Sears, Wal-Mart and others. Guess what? They work and last five years. Why spend the extra money on an alleged "better" battery?
