    Agree. Kalaban talaga ng baterya ang init sa kanyang service life; At ang lamig naman during vehicle start....

    Pero itong replacement battery,-during that time iyong Innova ang workhorse, at palaging bilad sa araw sa opisina... So, to me that's an affirmation. Pero siyempre, sa garahe namin, nakabubong sila....

    I wonder if car battery chargers (not sure what these are officially called) such as ctek really work in prolonging the life of a car's battery.

    any testimonials from actual users here?

    it should, in theory.
    batteries degrade fastest, when kept in uncharged condition for long periods.

    any decent battery charger should be able to recharge your battery, keeping it fully charged. but the ctek manufacturer/marketeer claims their product does it more conveniently, with less manual input from the user.

    Naisip ko lang, di kaya napapalitan sa casa ang mga battery? That might explain why some batteries don't make it to the end of warranty.

    at times, maybe more for imported units and not-so-fast-moving units, the batteries the brand new cars came with, have been sitting in the bodega, already installed, for some time, before buyer drives the car away.
    the car may be spankin' brand new, but by the time they get to us, that battery has been there for some time already, uncared for (i.e., uncharged), its life clock already ticking away..

    in a way tumatagal sya kasi for the price of 1, eh 2 battery yung nagagamit.. so kung 21 months ang warranty, tapos 18 months tumagal yung isa and another 20 months yung replacement.. so 38 months for the price of 1 battery..
