    question lang: nung naghiram ka ba ng battery sa iba, matagal mo ginamit and naiwan ba overnight? Kasi kung hindi, baka naman me "grounded" connection ka kaya nadidiskarga battery mo. conflicting kasi sa unang statement ng mekaniko mo na kesyo ok pa battery kaya niya pinakargahan.

    Malalaman ng Motolite agencies kung kelan date ng manufacture ng batteries basing it from the serial numbers stamped above it. Ask them when it was made. Kung less than 18months may trade-in value pa yan. Kung di na, Php100 na lang value nyan, then use it to buy conventional batteries which you can have it repaired when the plates are damaged.

    actually, pina-recharged ko sya ng isang araw then i left it sa shop for another day coz i didnt have the time to pick it up. The next morning, i got it back and when i started the van, at first ignition medyo malakas pa pero di parin nag start, the succeeding ignitions is sobrang mahina na compared to the first one, parang hinigop bigla ang power ng battery

    im thinking of buying the classic one of Motolite, yung low maintenance, merong tag P1450 pero 6months warranty lang. i just worry na baka hindi nya kayanin ang requirements ng van ko. my current battery is 2SMF. and i also worry about i heard na modus ng mga battery dealers with regards to warranty. sabi ng friend ko, when they found out na nasira ang battery mo, they'll accuse your alternator na naka cause daw ng sira so they wont replace it

    by the way, hayun iniwan ko nalang ang van na nakatiwawang for 3 weeks already. aandar pa kaya yun sa tulak para mapa-check ko kung grounded nga ba ang sasakyan or its just the battery

    Van ba kamo? Diesel engine? Afaik, 3SM ang requirements to crank it up. Except for smaller older models like Toyota's 2C which can be cranked by 2SMFs. Kung nasabayan pa yan ng faulty alternator na hindi nakakargan ang battery and supplying enough current for your ride while engine is running.

    gas lang po, its a nissan vanette. pina-check ko na yung alternator, ok naman daw sabi ng mechanic. so ok lang kaya yung Motolite classic na low maintenance? anu disadvantage nun besides sa corosion na pwedeng idulot when filling up with water?

    actually kung di sumobra ang pagrefill mo sa tubig di naman cocorrode yan masyado eh. Yung sa benz ko dati 1.5 years yung low maint na Mercury battery ni konting corrosion wala sa terminal.

    the solution is to go to one of motolite's authorized distributors. i bought a battery from some place in evangelista. nung nasira siya with 1 month left on the warranty, bumalik ako dun. wala na yung place (nagsara na). so i went to an authorized distributor at pinalitan nila. walang hassle. i just paid 100 petot as tip to the guy who replaced the battery.

    alam ba ninyo kung how much na ang 3SM ng Motolite ? 4.5K, just bought one kanina. A little over two years ago 3.6K lang yun.

Nadidischarged na battery, pwede pa kayang ayusin?
