I use interstate megatrons but Deka batteries are just as good I hear. I have used optima batteries in my life and I have to say I hated them each time.

My OE MC batteries lasted for over 5 years, maybe those are what I should go with, if they're not too expensive, that is. My neighbor gets a discount though . . JC makes the MC batteries too . Sounds like they have their hands in the building of several batteries. It's a crap shoot!

FYI who makes kirkland batteries Batteries | Compare Reviews and Trusted Advice from Battery Experts

There are only three or four companies that actually make car batteries. They just make them to the specs provided by whomever is OEM'ing them.

That said, I am running Autozome Duralast Gold batteries. They are also made by the same people as Interstate and Die Hard.

Mine are about two years old.

AC Delco Professional. I'm not saying they are the greatest batteries ever, but they offer the best warranty I've seen so far. 50 month replacement(not pro-rated). I have two of them, one was replaced under warranty about 8 months ago. I don't get another 50 months on the replacement, it goes by the original purchase date.They will be 50 months old in July 2012. I believe I payed 115.00 each. Living in FL, with the heat, I'm perfectly fine buying a new set every 50 months if I had to. I'm kinda actually hoping the other one goes before the warranty is up. That would give me at least 7-8 years for $115.00 each. Not bad
