    just like what everyone said previously..lifespan of batteries are usually 2 years. If it reached that, then it was worth buying. I am happy to note that my stock motolite maintanence free battery is still alive and kicking. 3 years na. Orig battery since it was bought. hehehhehe. motolite ako ulit.if ever it needs replacement soon.

    Sa akin,- 18 months lang,- palit na ng bago. You'll never know what happens after that because batteries nowadays do not show any tell tale signs that they're going down, even with visual indicators on the unit. Just dies instantaneously.... Saves you the heartaches and more importantly,- abala.

    Kung brand new vehicles,- normally 2 years, dahil (daw) mas makapal ang plates....

    more than 2 yrs is not bad. i do add distilled water after the warranty. madali lang naman kahit maint free, sticker lang naman ang nakatakip in every hole. my orig motolite excel 2sm is more than 4 yrs at malakas pa. talagang sulit. (don't know kung me special arrangement sila ng casa)

    paanong securing? as in preventing it to rock inside the hood? hmmm...yung brackets that came with the vehicle is enough na to make it secure db?


    okay. the battery we bought for my mom's car lasted 2years and 2 months. so matatawag ko na itong sulit. siguro same brand pa rin ang bibilhin ko.

    yung gamit ko naman sa ride ko ay motolite na maintenance free na color green. malakas pa sya although may lumulobo sa gilid. siguro malapit na rin ang due noon.

    oo nga... we can never tell how long pa ang life span doon as maintenance free batteries except it's expected life span.

    salamat sa mga nagreply.

    in my case, i bought a 2sm motolite July of last year lang, pero nasira alternator ko and na-discharged battery ko, so i had it recharged nalang. ngayon medyo hard starting sa umaga. Considering its under one year pa lang, is it advisable to replace my battery with a new one? TIA.
