I use this battery in my '98 Ford Expedition 4x4 4.6L Vin W and the old battery I replaced just today lasted 5yrs...Truck batteries aren't cheap, but the excellent service I get and free installation more than makes up for that....I will not use any other battery in this Truck!

I have purchased TWO of these "GOLD" Batteries. The FIRST one went into my 1997 Ford F-250 4X4 460 CID. IT, only lasted not quite ONE YEAR. I have worked with lead acid Batteries for 45+ years, so I checked the specific gravity on all the cells when this one rolled over on it's back, (it went T.U. at least 12 times, and had to be charged just to start the truck) and the #2 cell (from Neg term) was reading "water only". The alternator always puts out 14.6 VDC, and the "ALL OFF" current drain is only 3.5 MICROAMPS. So this Battery went back to the Advance Auto Parts store where I bought it, and "explained" to the sales KID, WHY it was BAD. It was obvious, that he didn't have a CLUE, as to what I was talking about with "Specific Gravity", so he "Tested" it with an Electronic Tester, which of course told him it was O.K. !! There was NO educating him about batteries, so he would NOT replace it for me. Of course the Manager was not there at the time, so I found out WHEN he was supposed to be there (next day) and I went back and talked to him. He was very nice, and swapped it right away. So I got a NEW identical battery put in. Well, the new one was built in May, 2010, and now IT keeps going DEAD!! But, I am tired of battery swapping, so I gave up on this "THING". I live in Lakewood CO, and I like a battery that will turn my crank at ANY temperature, even if the headlights were left on for 1 or 2 hours, (which actually happened to my wife in our 1995 Aerostar, with an Autocraft Titanium battery in it). The original MOTORCRAFT factory battery that came in my truck, lasted ELEVEN YEARS with never a failure!!! So I went to a FORD dealer and had a new 850 CCA battery put in. NO MORE AUTOCRAFT BATTERIES FOR ME. Sorry, but some of the CHILDREN working there, have NO knowledge of what they sell. But, that is becoming common everywhere these days, isn't it !!

      No, go with a bigger 1000cca battery otherwise it will shorten your battery life and make starting your vehicle harder, I know from experience!

  • Q:

    I notice other battery sites are listing the "amps". e.g.: 60 amps,70 amps , 80 amps.
    Can you tell me the amps of this battery? I don't know much about this, just trying to compare this Autocraft Gold to some other brands out there amp wise. I know yours mentions the cranking and cold cranking amps, but why are a lot of the others listing those plus listing the "amps"? thx!

      SD battery is designed for for high temperature applications.

      Answered on 4/26/2017 by jmollman from undisclosed
    • A:

      The SD 850 is a non-rechargable starter battery. I've had no problem out of
      both of my diesel trucks which both have 2 gold batteries. I have the
      regular 850cca batteries.

      Answered on 4/25/2017 by bubba from undisclosed
    • A:

      According to a customer care answer from 2014, "The SD in the part number indicates that the battery is a Southern Design for the state of Florida and Puerto Rico at this time. The battery provides better resistance to damage from high heat that is experienced in the south." I hope that is helpful.
