Same here. I've noticed since I started working from home, my 2016 CX-5 would not start after 3-5 days of sitting in the garage (I do have remote starter so there's some draining). I've been using a trickle-charger in the garage when I don't anticipate driving soon. This is a good deal at the right time for me. I'm in the opposite weather, Minnesota, btw :-)
I had a 2018 CX-5 AWD and I feel like it needs more juice to get started, it always took a half second longer to start than our other cars. No issues at all tho. I haven't driven my new car in about two weeks, started up just fine on the cheapo factory battery. It's been unbearably hot lately, I don't think I'd want snow but I can't wait for "winter" when it's less than 90 degrees during the day!

Same. Some people are willing to have a car break down or worse, have their kids/wife stranded.
That's exactly how I feel. It's just personal preference. If you're a single guy who is handy, getting stuck somewhere may just be a minor inconvenience. For others, it's a pain in the rear and can be a safety issue depending on where you get stuck.

It is made by East Penn Manufacturing aka Deka. They are one of the best battery manufacturer alongside Clarios.

What I've researched their rebranded deka which are one of the best, I just bought an interstate from Costco because same warranty lower price, but deka is suppose to be one of the best.
For Group 24F battery, Sam's Club is $102.69 - $20 = $82.69 while Costco Interstate is $89.99. 3 years ago, Costco had the same Interstate battery with longer 42 month warranty for $83.99.

I ended up getting a ValuePower 24F (made by Johnson Controls) from Walmart for ~$50 because Costco was out of stock at the time. Only 1 year warranty, hope it lasts at least the 3 years that I got out of an expensive AAA battery.

According to my light research years ago.... car audio nuts buy duracell AGMs (which is all i've used ever since i found out) as budget batteries, when they can't afford XS battery.

Ours was on my fiances camry for 5 years before we traded it in for a mercedes for her mom.

In my opinion you can't go wrong with AGM. Last week we bought another duracell AGM after her interstate battery went bad on her lexus. I expect another 5 years MINIMUM out of it (it still didnt go bad after 5 years).

TLBig GrinR walmart gold is best for the top half of the united states. You can find a bit better choice if you never see freezing temp, or if temps regularly go below -10f.

can anyone recommend the preferred method of swap? I have swapped regular way as well as swap when vehicle is already ON/ running engine.
One tech (@ Sams) told me to jump start my vehicle, and take out dead battery and install new and preserve all settings/ avoid entering system code again but I also heard that it's not a good idea to do that.
That's how I previously tested alternators (on older cars) by removing the ground cable, but I wouldn't do that in a newer car. Check out these links:
http://www.troubleshooters.com/do...attery.htm
https://www.cartalk.com/content/d...ator-i-was

There are two safe ways to preserve your settings.
1. Use a pair of jumper cables to a good battery. No cars running. Connect the terminals and swap batteries which will maintain power to the car. You can connect the negative cable to the terminal or chassis. Though if you have those POS GM side post batteries, you'll have to find other connection points or cut a piece of the insulation away for the positive side. Some cars have an alternative place to hook the positive side.
2. They make an adapter to plug into your auxiliary power outlet (cigarette lighter) or OBD to preserve the power and car settings. From my experience, American cars ports are usually hot with the key off, while imports turn off the port with the key off.

Thanks, repped. N=1, battery in my current vehicle is a Duracell and was purchased at Sam's 7-8 years ago, just tested it with a battery tester and it's reading slightly weak, could probably last a bit more, but since we're heading into winter, rather not risk it.

Since covid I've been putting a battery tender on my cars once a month. We drive maybe 100 miles a month now and not wanting our fairly new batteries to go bad over time. Last set of batteries lasted for 7 years but I always charge my new batteries to fill before installing and charge every 6 months just in case.

Not in my experience. My first Duracell from batteries plus bulbs lasted about 20 months and had it replaced under warranty. The replacement lasted about the same. The battery from advance auto is still going strong on my other car after 3 years.
Most car batteries are made locally & typically the only thing that changes is just the label on the battery that determines the price you are willing to pay. 2yr, 7yr, 10yr batteries are just the same battery.

Agreed. Unless it's flat dead, portable starters are great. Can't agree with tossing a good battery just because it's reached a certain age. Bad for the environment, but your money your choice really
Auto batteries are actually the most recycled products in the U.S.A. with a recycle rate of at least 95%. Some sources claim it's closer to 98-99%. Regardless, I do agree that it's wasteful and unnecessary to replace them after a certain age. Most newer cars have a volt meter so after the battery gets to be about 4 years old I just periodically check what the voltmeter says before I start the vehicle after sitting overnight. If you're observant you'll rarely be surprised by a sudden dead battery unless you forget to turn something off.

Yesterday, I replaced the battery in our 2007 Chevy Equinox for the third time (owned since 2008) because I noticed the voltage was reading around 11.7 volts before starting it a few mornings over the course of the last couple weeks. There were no other symptoms of a bad battery aside from that. I tried to trickle charge the battery, but it already looked discharged again the next morning.

I don't know why, but the battery doesn't last much more than four years in this vehicle despite being treated good every time. The replacement batteries meet or exceed the OE 650 CCA rating. I trickle charge batteries whenever possible before installation. The vehicle is driven almost daily and not for many short trips.

Bummer, just bought a 48 Series Interstate at Costco for $120.... how does Sams price compare?

FWIW Costco service was amazing.
When comparing prices make sure you are also comparing like batteries. The AGM batteries are always more expensive than the traditional flooded lead acid batteries. My local Sam's currently has the AGM H6/48 priced at $139.41 and the flooded lead acid H6/48 for $95.60 (after $20 off deal).

The H6 AGM costs 165 dollars in my local Costco. $139 is absolutely the best price nowadays.

In March 2019, I bought the group 49 battery for just $91, according to my Sam's Club receipt.

it is now $101, after the $20 coupon.... which means it increased by $30 since March 2019? Frown
