    gandang araw mga boss!

    kindly compare the 2 batteries mentioned with regards to lifespan, durability and reliability. low maintenance at maintenance free na battery for both brands. nakapagikot kasi ako sa mga batt shop at nirekomenda ung GS tropical. made in japan daw e. tska mas mura. pangalan lang naman ang binibili sa motolite sabi nung nasa shop. hindi muna ako bumili kasi die hard motolite gold ako e kako magsosolicit muna ako ng mga experiences ninyo.
    salamat ng madami

    nakagamit na ako ng GS, yup, medyo mahaba ang buhay specially hindi MF yung type. inabot ata ako ng 4 years.

    actually, pwede pa sana sya pero namatay na din yung alternator ko eh.... which discharged the battery.

    Hi..

    Simple lang..

    GS is imported and enhanced with Japan Technology.. Motolite is local..

    We should compare low maintenance vs low maintenance..
    and compare maintenance free vs maintenance free..

    Mayroon din GS Tropical Maintenance Free.. Japan Tech din..

    Here's their worldwide website for your consideration of GS Battery :

    http://www.gs-yuasa.com/jp/index.asp (choose English version on right top)

    Suggestion lang.. dont buy "pangalan".. buy the "technology".. then u will feel no regret at all.. =).

    Best Regards.

    Low maintenance and No-maintenance have different class, maganda i-compare yung same number of plates para patas.

    GS 3SM ang stock naka salpak ngayon sa 10 month old Montero and ngayon ko pa lang masusubukan ang tagal ng GS na de-tubig (low maintenance).

    But IMO malaking factor sa comparison kung naka condition ang alternator, di overloaded sa accessories and kung di abused ang aircon - pirming naka-todo.

    I always check ang preferred those with the most number of plates on each row (11 plates the better) Dun ka lamang pagdating sa reserved power.

    No, Motolite being local is not a bad thing as it is.

    Kung yan ang mentality ng mga pinoy, babagsak lahat ng industry dito. Matutuwa ang mga foreigners nyan. That's decades of colonialism at work. It's actually a brilliant economic war tool. Pag na-colonize at na-dumb down mo na ang mga tao, they will self-destruct. Afterwards, here you go cheerfully stuffing their mouths with your supposedly superior products like a Vulture.

    Maganda naman ang products ng Motolite and we've always used Motolite Gold. The last one worked well for 5years. Meron din dito na Motolite Enduro and it still works after 4yrs. Since laging Bosch ang binibili namin for our construction equipment/tool needs, I just wanted to try Bosch batteries kaya ako bumili nun.

    Trying out foreign brands is okay but saying that our local products suck is another matter. I would rather buy a locally made product than those na galing China or SE Asia whenever possible. Mas matino di hamak ang craftsmanship ng mga pinoy.

    Also, kung Japan Technology ang GS, ibig sabihin, di yan gawa sa Japan. It's probably made in China lang kaya kailangan pa sabihin na Japan tech.

    agree, some locally made batteries are better than imported ones... Outlast is also good...
