What brand of Automotive Battery do you use?



Do you also upgrade your alternators?

Interstate Battery is in my 94 F250 with a high output alternator. My 06 f250 PSD still has the factory batteries. When its time, Interstates will go in that truck as well.

I usually get Interstate Batteries. Good luck out of them. I have a high output alternator that I bought online from an alternator place. Almost a year and it is already going out. You have to rev it up to have the voltage up. I would recommend high output only if you are using off road lights, winch, ect. But for everyday use no.

I've had good luck with Walmart's black and yellow ones (Duramaxx???). They're made by the same manufacturer out of Oregon that makes all of Napa's, as well...

I just started using interstate and have been happy so far. I buy the blemished ones pretty darn cheap.

Most auto batteries are made by just three manufacturers, Delphi, Exide, and Johnson Controls Industries. Each makes batteries sold under several different brand names. Delphi makes ACDelco and some EverStart (Wal-Mart) models. Exide makes Champion, Exide, Napa, and some EverStart batteries. Johnson Controls makes Diehard (Sears), Duralast (AutoZone), Interstate, Kirkland (Costco), Motorcraft (Ford), and some EverStarts.

I use "Sears" batteries. I have one in use right now that is 7 years old. That sucker has defiantly paid for itself. I think it was $89.99 new, not too bad. :cool2:
