I bought a Wal-Mart Everstart Marine Battery 875 Cranking Amp. in February 2008. It carried an 18 month full replacement with no charges. I bought the most expensive battery they had hoping it would last a long time. I paid over $85.00 for the battery.
I used it through the summer of 2008 until July of this year 2009. In July it died.I put a trinkle charge on the battery for three days. I went fishing the week after the 4th and it would not turn the motor over. I had to get towed back to shore.
I haven't had the opportunity until today to take the battery in for a replacement. I had the battery 19 months.
After the prorated battery ripoff i ended up paying another $76 for a new battery. They allowed me $17 for the old battery.
I have had Marine batteries to last over 5 to 9 years. It makes me wonder if these Everstart batteries are not RECONDITIONED batteries. The price they charge you would think they are new.
For a store as large as Wal-Mart there is no such thing as Customer Satisfaction Anymore.
The so called salesman in the sports department told me the reason the battery died is bacause i did not disconnect the wires from the battery everytime i came home. He said the battery was still being discharged when it remained hooked up. HA HA
