    So Motolite told my father in law na mas maayos at mas malaki daw yung battery na linagay nga... "pangmatagalan"

    Father in law was so happy and even sent me the receipt... 1SMF din yung linagay ni Motolite, although physically, mas malaki sya ng konti sa Panasonic

    ***
    quick background, walang alam si father in law pag dating sa sasakyan...

    ok gets ko na!

    Sabi ni Motolite... Maliit yung Panasonic battery na gamit ng car ko...

    Mas malaki daw pinalit nya.

    Although physically, mas malaki nga yung battery na kinabit nya...

    Pero if you look at the label/receipt. 1SMF din yung battery na kinabit nya

    some folks compute the pesos per month of warranty, and choose the one with the lower number.
    it's probably the more logical decision-making computation.

    No. Different brands, different specs. Even within the same brand they have a range of batteries with different specs.

    Excel > Gold > Enduro. But Motolite doesn't publish their specs anymore. Bakit kaya?

    Bumili ang brother ko and my uncle ng Enduro and Yokohama battery this July lang, both 3SMF. Mas cheaper pa ang Yokohama. Nacompare ko ang CCA ng dalawa. Using a battery analyzer gadget that I bought at Blade Autocenter, yung Enduro nasa 640 ang average CCA niya while yung Yokohama nasa 720 ang average CCA niya.


    Now you know why Motolite doesn't publish its CCA lol
