    Hahaha. Pero weird kasi sa Motolite it dies just after warranty din pero sa Amaron haba ng lifespan

    Yung Amaron ko sa daily driver lasted 23 months only. 2 months after ng warranty.
    Then switched to Panasonic that lasted 35 months. Replaced with another Panasonic. Amaron battery at sana umabot ng 35months din

    That's less than half my usual. Glad yours lasted that long.... can't expect the same off any brand out there with our usage. Got a Panasonic on its 39th month & still kicking....for how much longer? Dunno. Can't complain.

    Is there a difference between gas or diesel engine in the life span of the battery? Because diesel requires more amps during startup and might cause the battery to deteriorate more compared to gas.

    Iirc mas demanding ang diesel cars kaya mas tumatagal talaga battery with gas fed engines. Diesel cars need more oomph to power the cranks as they are compression type.

    But this is more or less compensated by Diesel cars having bigger and usually more robust batteries.

    Guys I don't really fancy posting about work so let me start and end with this. Energizer has only been in the market for 2+ years. Too early to tell if it will perform better or worse than Amaron. And yes it was under the same company as Amaron's past technical partner, Johnson Controls (now Clarios). Varta and Optima were under JC in the past as well. Main differentiator would be the EFB and AGM batteries. Standard start/stop cars require EFBs. Those with regenerative braking and/or luxury makes usually require AGMs.

    i must confess.
    i use automotive (gasoline) batteries for my diesels.
    they still manage to die a couple of weeks after warranty lapses.

    They have to be, bugbog sa biyahe eh hehe. Kaya yung motolite kita mo yung mga diesel batteries nila na pang-harabas, truck master ang product code.

Amaron battery
