    My battery is Motolite Gold Maintenance Free. Hindi ko alam kung kelan binili, basta i bought my 2nd-hand van 9 months ago. One day, hindi na nakapag start ang van ko. At first, i thought na naiwan ko lang na bukas ang ilaw overnight. When i had it charged sa shop, sabi ng mechanic ok pa raw ang battery kaya pinakargahan niya. Then I had it back to my van and it started pero medyo hirap na. The whole time, every start ko is hirap talaga. Kinabukasan, sobrang hirap na sya magstart pero after several tries, umandar naman. Pero nung hindi ko ginamit ang van for 2 days, ayaw na talagang magstart. And i noticed na kapag iniiwan ko sya, it discharges itself. I have proven it coz i once had it recharged and left it na hindi nakakabit sa van, after 24 hours nung kinabit ko na sya, ayaw na magstart. I also borrowed someone else's battery and ok na starting ng van. Sabi ng mechanic, kelangan na siguro palitan ng battery dahil kusa na syang nagdidischarge. Question ko po, pwede pa kaya ipaayos ang battery instead of buying a new one?

    Bili ka na lang ng bago...

    Usually, baka may tama na yung ilang plates ng battery.

    Better replace it with brand new. Pag repair hindi ka sigurado at baka itirik ka lang.

    I agree with replacing it. No warranty na kasi yan pag na repair.

    ala pa kase kong budget for a new battery and i need to use the van. im just thinking that it would be a lot cheaper to repair than to replace.

    Then ipa-repair mo muna and pray na hindi bumigay kaagad.

    you must know that ONE SHOULDN'T THROW AWAY OLD BATTERIES.

    contrary to popular belief, lead-acid batteries are almost 100% recyclable. so even though they're chock-full of heavy metals, they're not dangerous to the environment if managed properly. usually the battery is "re-plated" parang ino-overhaul yung plates sa loob, tapos good as new na yun.

    why don't you go to motolite accredited dealer? (like this big one along pasong tamo.. dun ako nagpa-RMA) they might have a record of that battery, if it's 15 months old or less they should replace it kahit wala ka nang resibo.
