Great battery

Powerful battery. A handle would make installation much easier not to mention carrying it out of the store. Side mount and top mount access points are nice for charging. Overall, good product.

      • Q:

        What is the projected normal battery life?
        Asked on 9/30/2016 by Rusty from New Bern, NC

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Hi Rusty, happy to help you! The average car battery lasts somewhere between three and five years. This is because the standard lead acid battery must stand up to not only 200-degree plus heat under the hood in the summer. However in the winter, it must work when temperatures are consistently at or below freezing for much of it. Further, short trips with frequent stopping and starting strain the battery in ways you would not expect.

      • Q:

        I originally bought an autocraft gold, it had a 3 yr free replacement 84 month prorated. It is 4 months from being 3 yrs. After 2 trips to the store they finally decided it was defective it wouldn't hold a charge. It was replaced with a silver that was their decision. I end up with a 4 month warranty and 0 month prorated. So if this one is defective and it messes up in 5 months I'm gonna have to purchase another one. You would think that you would at least get a 1 yr warranty. I mean the PRODUCT was defective.I understand if you have people returning things all the time that you have to have guidelines, but you keep records of this type of thing. What of the customers who are valued customers.

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Hi Grams, happy to help you! Per our limited warranty policy the battery free replacement period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the free replacement period that is printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the free replacement period. If the battery is found defective after the free replacement period but prior to the end of the warranty period, a prorated credit will be issued that can be applied toward the purchase of a new battery. The prorated credit will be determined by dividing the original 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 or use of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty.The Autocarft Silver battery is a quality line of product like the Gold and I'm sure you will not have any issues in the near future. If at all there is an issue you can always contact us at: 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives will be glad to assist you a resolution.

        what is the size for the front terminals? I need to buy new bolts but do not know the size.

      • Q:

        This battery (part no. 78/34-4) used to be 'Gold', not 'Silver'. That means the free replacement period is reduced from 3 to 2 years. Does that mean you've been seeing problems with early failures? I bought one a couple of years ago when it was Gold. I need a new battery for a different vehicle, and am dissapointed and concerned that this same battery is now labeled 'Silver' - like it's not holding up as was expected. :(
