It's brand new, just installed it last night. Date code stamps make no sense to me.

For those with poor eyesight, I think the top code is J9GHB and the side stamp is 6J27BS2N

Pretty sure it's Johnson Controls, thanks for the date. I actually called the champion battery support number and they claimed J9 was November 2019, he said their letter codes are a month behind or something.
