To change a battery in Suntec when my honda headlights forgot to off.
The new battery brand was DRIVE. At that time the guy came in a conti OPEL van with his GF, to help me change the battery. I think I paid $160. Yes I know it's market rate for AMERON, not some lousy DRIVE brand battery.
I did told that guy I want AMERON, but he said this is a GERMANY branded battery, just as good as AMERON.
Fast forward to last week.
Can't start my car.
I know this time it was not due to headlights drain out the battery, because I did check the day before I left the car locked.
So I thought I can jump start with another car battery. Hooked up the red/black cables to a fully charged battery.
Still cannot start.
In the end swopped out the DRIVE battery with a second hand AMERON battery. And the Honda car starts perfectly.
One week later, still ok.
I have a pulse charger(Ctek) to charge the DRIVE battery at home. For the past week, the charger is tick-tok-tick-tok trying to charge the battery.
Even tilting the battery is all possible position it is still not able to charge.
I don't know how a car battery can suddenly FAILED.
Be careful with this DRIVE brand of lousy battery.
I now only trust big brand battery.
The second hand AMERON battery is already four years old, and is still strong and workable in my Honda.
