I normally would always purchase Sears brand batteries. Since SEARS closed a store one mile from my home I foolishly went for a wall mart battery. What a BIG mistake. The Wallmart battery catastrophically failed shortly after normal usage even though I kept it on a "maintainer". So now for another replacement battery I will drive 25 miles to their last remaining SEARS store in the area or have it shipped. I thought that, give or take, batteries were about the same.... well not so. Sears brand batteries are holding up quite well in my diesel trucks.
