    From what I saw in Discovey Channel, old batteries are recycled by melting melting down the lead to liquid form, then its recast into lead bars before being shipped out for manufacturing. Not sure if this also applies in RP. According to the show 90 someting percent of lead is recylced.

    from what i know, the trade in batteries are recycled.. the battery is pulverized and melted the different parts are then segregated and recycled to make new plastic components, the LEAD part of the battery is then melted and recycled.

    Most types of batteries can be recycled. lead-acid automotive batteries (nearly 90% are recycled)

    During the recycling, the used lead is then mixed with new lead... it is during this critical phase that purity must be achieved...
    calcium in the battery strengthens the lead from mechanical stress but increase its mechanical instability...

    during the life of the battery, cycling from high to low loads, shortens the battery life... eventually particles of lead or the separators will fail and battery voltage and current will drop...

    The more pure the materials used, and stringent the manufacturing process the better...

    according to the website, AMARON batteries is under jonston controls ... JONSTON CONTROLS makes the best and most powerful batteries,, ONE of them is OPTIMAX and VARTA... so i guess this battery does adhere to ISO specification and stringent quality controls... if im not mistaken, there's no local battery (motolite/outlast/imarflex/ETC) that has passed and international testing and accreditation...

    ang hirap kasi nga baguhin ang nakasanayan kahit hindi maganda... sanay na tao sa motolite eh... tambak kasi advertisement (pang-matagalan)... pero if you look outside the box and beyond, madame quality and performing batteries out there better than those locally sold here...

    pero ang lakas ng export ng motolite to middle east.

    Mukhang ok nga yan miko ha, esp kung ma-extend mo yung life niya more than 21 months.

    Puwede din kais na yung quality ng for export at yung pan-local consumption is different.

    Pero ang bigat talaga ng battery is one good sign kung tatagal ito or hindi. Telecom batteries na 3Sm din vs regular car batt na 3Sm, ang layo ng timbang eh.

    possibility nga talaga yan.. it could be that iba products nila na pang international market... kase madame kalaban motolite sa international market, like AC DELCO, at VArta.. eh kung panget gawa mo di ka mabibili dun...

    sa specs pa lang kasi impressive na talaga yung amaron... motolite di nila advertise yugn specs battery nila... pag nagtanung ka sa store kadalasan di alam nang tindera ang CCA/AH/RC...

    imagine ang timbang ng amaron ay 22.5 KILOS! samantalang ang motolite enduro same size 3smf ay 18 kilos
    thats 4.5 kilo difference... nag hirap nga ilagay sa battery box sa engine bay....

    ang problem is wala pa masyado distribution.. sa mga province usually limited ang choices... that's the sad part...

    miko - would you happen to know the number of Jawe marketing? or meron pa bang ibang stores na nagbebenta ng Amaron Battery? i need a 1SN battery e hehe motolite excel (24months warranty) is priced at 4,200. a little too expensive for me.
