What do I look for when buying a new battery?

  • Quality of the Product

  • Meets or Exceeds CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) and RC (Reserve Capacity) ratings for your specific vehicle

  • Availability of correct product to fit your vehicle

  • Nationwide distribution of product

  • Warranty (Free and Pro-rated)

Note: Battery buying strategy for use in Canada, for example, is different than hot climates that you find in Texas. In the colder climates, higher CCA ratings are more important, whereas, in a hot climate, higher RC ratings are more important once the CCA rating has satisfied the OEM’s vehicle cranking amp requirement.
