Well, hope they make it.
Struggling under EPA cleanup mandates, maybe under the new administration they can find relief. Who knows.

X2. They keep losing huge accounts over low quality batteries.

Recycling lead acid batteries while needed cannot be a great business. Lots of environmental concerns. (Rightfully so).

Fifty years ago they were the best auto batteries availiable and I tested all manufactures batteries at Argonne Labs for their electric vehicle program. A great name down the drain. I feel bad for the company and especially those who worked there. Ed

So, they shouldn't be responsible for safe handling of heavy metals?
I'm failing to see what the criticism is, if there is something more specific please elaborate...but otherwise blaming the EPA for a failing business seems misguided.
And the "new" administration has been in place for 3.5 years. So, how many more years are needed? 12?

Agree. I bought an Exide at HD last year and have been happy. Hopefully they can recover from this and maintain Domestic manufacturing.

Comments involving the EPA don’t go down well with the moderators. Too close to politics.

Rural King used to have Exide as their own brand. I never had trouble with them.


Don't waste your time on a slipshod repair.
