Battery manufacturers always love customers like this and more so if they are loyal.

No worry laa these days are much easier. If your battery die, just open smartphone and you can already get someone to help you change to new battery

What Ricky300 said makes hell a lot of sense. Periodic maintenance & inspection is the key to removing batteries that's going downhill from service altogether.

What you've written is also true albeit partially. Sure no worries, if a weak battery fails to crank the car and that's it. This is a blessing cause it will be replaced without any incident whatsoever.

However, should a weak battery EXPLODE while still in service for whatever reason, irregardless whether it's under Warranty or otherwise, then what ? Those who are good at probability can probably work out the chances of the battery exploding.

I wish explosion of such are mere fiction but it's undeniable that generally the number of cases due to battery exploding worldwide is on the rise as well.

No doubt help is just a call away, but such help is literally of no use at all, if they don't clean the posts & terminals that's stained with gunk because that will be against their interest.

So far I haven't heard any complaints about the German made Varta's batteries except that it's the best.

If possible, I would prefer to use Century's Ultramax.

Performance wise is acceptable and it is made in Malaysia.

Amaron and Exide are made in India and this will cause outflow of fund.

Have to support Malaysia made products.
