    Default Duracell vehicle battery

    Good evening.
    Has anyone bought a Duracell car battery, and what are your thoughts on it? Is it new in market?
    Normally they make good batteries for equipment, but it's the first time I see it in a car battery.

    I installed a Duracell 80Ahr in the cruiser in Feb this year. So far, so good although we hardly use the old girl, mostly for trips/camps.
    I do however like to keep it on intelligent charge most of the time.

    I have read somewhere that is just a re-labeled Varta. Duracell bought Varta a while back. Had a Varta battary in my car. Longest service I got out of a battery ever.

    *Correction: just checked: Energizer bought Varta's battery division, not Duracell. Apologies

    Fitted a 105 ah to Debby's Touareg early this year.

    Her car basically is a holiday car, so the battery is on a smart charger every two weeks.

    So far, no problems.

    Bought it a couple of months back. Somewhat pricy compared to those common in the market and they carry a longer warranty (2 years). Other than looking a bit nicer and carrying a popular battery maker's name, I did not pick anything special or unique about it. I will be following other members comments about it who may have owned it a bit longer.
