    I purchased this battery on 4/23/03 to replace the original in my Craftsman riding lawn mower. The second one was bought on 8/6/08. I now need to replace this one. So that averages out to about a 5 year battery life. Note that this is used to start a 10hp engine and that the weekly grass cutting season here begins in April and runs through at least October. Maybe I've gotten lucky, but I've been pleased with the service life. If there's something better, I've never looked for it!

    Purchased June 2011, was load tested today, 10/2/11 and declared no good. Store employees can't explain why and don't seem interested that throwing away [$] is a big deal. Won't shop at this company anymore for any part. [@] is a competitor in the area, and they just earned my business.

                              Hi High Tower, glad to assist you! U1 and U1R are in the same battery group size. The "R" indicates that the positive lead is on the RIGHT side of the battery.

                              A 4 or 5-digit shipping date code is engraved into the cover of each Interstate battery at the time the battery is shipped. This code can only be seen when looking down on the top of the battery. The code is not on the label on the battery and it is not on the rim around the cover. The code is usually near one of the corners of the battery. This code tells when the battery was shipped from the factory to the local Interstate Battery wholesale distributor. The additional digits tell where the battery was made. The first digit from the left side is a letter which stands for the month of the year. A = January; B = February; C = March, etc. The second digit from the left is the year that the battery was shipped from the factory. 4 = 2004, 5 = 2005, 6 = 2006, 7 = 2007, 8 = 2008, 9 = 2009, 0 = 2010, 1 = 2011, 2 = 2012, etc. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

                            I need to recharge my battery and I need to know if it has a positive ground or a negative ground so I can hook it up right. Does anyone know?
