I think you misunderstood.. We are talking about the battery and the way you worded the last post, was like saying the Amaron battery lasted 7 years in the car.. Guess you were talking about the car.. 7 years no biggie.. Got Volvo and Saga more than 20 years old.. Still in great shape.. laugh.gif

No lah.. No need for that.. That's really good MF battery life. So CBU with the battery. Was any additional maintenance done on the battery since day one..like take out and charge occasionally? Really first time I've heard of such.. Usually people say between 1 year to 3, maybe 4 years (with careful use and charging) max!!..

not surprised, American batteries last as long as well. I had been asking this question since I arrive back home, why Msian batteries lifespan is so much shorter?! sigh!

US is damn hot in summer, and southern states are not as cold as northern,but logically 2-3yrs vs more than 6yrs in US, just doesnt make sense.
The batteries there do have higher CCA, hardly seen in local batteries here, except for the imported ones.

Cold environment is also a battery killer during cold start.

If I had known, would have brought one to test it out here. hahaha

Nope, it won't.. Just make sure it's rated for the car's requirements or higher. Just don't buy a bigger sized battery than can fit securely in the allocated compartment.

Wet battery will last longer than MF with proper maintenance. Cheaper too.

About 100-200 dollars, not too bad, for local residence....

Technically, all lead acid batteries are wet. Inside construction basically the same.

Just that so called maintenance free is sealed away from user tampering with it.
