Pep-Boys' Bosch AGM battery sale has me tempted. I'm pretty sure Bosch doesn't make these themselves, so who does? And are they decent?

Exide makes them and they should be decent.

I had an exide orbital AGM and it lasted 90 months. Was made in spain. They dont make them any more. The Exide flooded batteries are 100% garbage.

The one I have is over 5 yrs old and going strong. Only $55 at Rural King. They now have a 2yr full replacement warranty.

I spoke with Bosch Tech support last week about spark plug recommendations for my car. Since I already had them on the phone, I asked who made their AGM batteries that are sold at Pep Boys. They said it was Exide.

Funny thing was they refused to provide information regarding spark plug choice but to contact the Porsche dealer!

The 24F Exide I bought Rural King was OK. Unlike the Johnson ones I had earlier, it did not cover itself and surrounding parts in acidic fuzz.

I pass on the exide batteries as well.

I honestly can't believe people still buy their batteries because they usually don't last.

I try to get Johnson Control batteries or East Penn/Deka batteries


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

The Bosch Platinum from Pep Boy's does have a 4 year replacement warranty.
