    Try to re check your alternator, kung talagang ok na sya you can claim your warranty nman sa battery shop na pinagbilhan mo...

    Optima is made in the US. It is a completely different battery design using spiral plates technology. It can be used in any orientation (upright; sideways; etc.) and lifespan is supposedly at least fice years. Siyempre, at least five times din ang presyo! he..he..he..

    Batteries are designed to last at least one year of NORMAL use. Longer life span can be designed pero mas mahal siyempre. The number of years is not really a good measure of the battery's worth. You have to factor in the electricals, type of engine (mas mainit ang diesel); age of the car (mas old, mas malakas mag discharge due to electrical leakage); at ACTUAL NUMBER OF HOURS USED. May tumatagal ng more than two years kasi mga teo hours a day lang nagagamit. May one year lang kasi almost 8 hours tumatakbo. So iba-iba yan.

    Generally, pag hindi mo ginamit ang car for two weeks or more, madidischarge talaga battery. Specially yung mga may alarm, digital clocks, etc.

    As for casa supplied batteries, one year lang design pero tumatagal dahil wala pang electrical leakage ang mga bagong cars.

    Was able to stretch my EG hatchback's first battery life to 4 years! Dun ako bumilib sa outlast brand.

    Not sure lang kung okay pa rin outlast ngayon.
    I agree with PK.

    Like PK, I was able to stretch my Outlast battery to four years dun sa dati kong Sentra.

    My Motolite Excel Super Premium battery ay 4 years na sa Crosswind ko by July this year. Due for replacement na, although malakas pa ang battery at mejo may bulge na sa gilid. I heared that the price of Motoline Excel SP is around P3750, while the Motolite Gold is P2450.
    Ano difference nung Motolite Enduro?
