      Comments about Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA:

      I purchased this battery as a replacement battery for my car. I was reluctant to get it because it was somewhat cheaper than the other choices I had. However, this was one of the coldest winters on record with well below
      zero temperatures and this battery worked like a champ. They had several warnings about batteries not working because of the record temperatures, but as I said before I had no problems. It was easy to install. i just installed this in December 2013 so I can't really say anything as far as it being a long lasting battery but for the price, so far I would buy it again.

      My previous battery suddenly died, so I had to get a replacement. I did not spend time looking for one or reading reviews about the battery for my 1999 Camry. The reason I chose this one because it was the cheapest one without realizing the size. It is OK to get the car run, althogh the power seems weaker than my last bettery. I picked it up at the store in Gaithersburg and replaced it myself. The employees did help, and they claimed no one was available, but I saw them later talking outside while I was replacing. You need to prepare for the situation and help yourself.

                      A:

                      With reference to your inquiry on the Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA - part# 26R-2, the average life span of a battery is about four to five years after that you are on borrowed time. However, this depends on the climate and weather conditions you are living at. If you live in a climate that has severe hot or cold temperatures, it shortens the life span of your battery. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                      A:

                      Yes, this Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA part# 26R-2 has 1 year free replacement warranty. Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery becomes defective after the Free Replacement Period and prior to the end of the warranty period, the warranty benefit will be prorated and can either be credited toward the purchase of a new battery or refunded at our option. The proration amount shall be determined by dividing the purchase price by the number of months of the warranty period, then multiplying the result by the months remaining in the warranty period. Partial months are rounded to the nearest whole month. Installation of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
