MiddleAgeSubie is on a distinguished road

Batteries do not last long in the Sonoran desert. I replaced my oem one preventively when it was 2yo.

That was 2.5 years ago. Back then I read extensively about the various batteries and found out who makes what where. People were mad about Optima moving production abroad. This might have added fuel to the fire but the issue with declined quality seemed real. Since then, I have forgotten the details but not the conclusions I drew.

East Penn makes X2 and Duracell somewhere in PA. The odyssey is made in Saint Louis.

They all have superior characteristics the details of which I have forgotten.
