    Default NEVER BUY WALMART'S BATTERIES OR YOU WILL BE SORRY


    Regardless if you used their batteries or not, they won't let you return no matter what!! Plus 75% of their batteries will cause your car to have faulty Fuel Reading.


    Full Story:

    There was no clear written "No Return" policy in front of the battery section, one of their managers tried to point out to me that there is a No-Return policy, I was surprised, later you read it, I did not see any where did it say "No return". They just made up their policy as they go these people.

    I bought one of their batteries a few days ago, I had never opened its seal nor used it. I later discovered that my other battery in my car is fine, something was wrong with my car's charging system. Any way, I thought I wouldn't be needing this new battery, now I am stuck with their battery.

    One more thing to keep in mind, their EverStart batteries (black color) had jumpy Current flow, its Current+Voltage will jump from 12.80v to 13.76v, also to 15.45volts, this will affect your Fuel Pump meter, you will get fluctuated Fuel level reading, because the fuel pressure depends on how hard the pump is doing its work.

    This is another reason why you should avoid buying from Wal-Mart no matter what they said. Their technicians will lied to you to get you to buy their low quality batteries, it costs me more troubles and good. Be ware.

    Ok Wal-mart lover, no matter what I said you will close your mind, I can tell.

    For others, you should test Wal-mart battery yourself by using a charging system with a Current Meter, Remember, No return whether it's good or bad battery. A total Riff-off.

    How to test?

    Put your charger on 6-Amps or higher, you will see your charger current meter jumps up and down like crazy. I believe Wal-mart used recycled batteries to poorly re-construct their batteries or to remarket the same battery as new by changing its chemical and by polishing its box.

    I have never bought a battery I didn't need. Does any store let you bring a
    battery back for a full refund when you screw up?

    Seventy-five percent? What are you basing that on?

    I suggest you breathe through you nose and lay off trying to give advice.
    You come across like a drama queen, bud.

    Been batteries buying there for years. No problem. Just replaced on
    last week on our Isuzu Rodeo. Prorated the old one per sales agreement.
    The prices have gone up a little though.

    I have always gotten my batteries at Walmart and they have all lasted me in
    each vehicle I have owned. Tom is an idiot.

    When did I say I screwed it? It has never been used. Go back and read it again you incredible Moron. You aren't a good reader, I can tell.

    No fucker, I drove for 30 years. As I said watch out for the "BLACK COLOR" the EverStart brand. You can't assume 1 good battery for all. I bought 2 batteries of the same type, they both behave the same way fucker. You will lose big if you bet with me, but I won't have time to mess with incredible Moron like you.

    You bought cheap car, that's why you loved cheap batteries.

    I've bought about six Wal-mart car batteries, all black ($30 w/ 12/60
    warranty, $40 w/ 24/72 warranty), and none failed in less than three
    years. I've gotten only one dud battery, a cheap Sears that went dead
    in only a few months, but it was made by Johnson Controls, just like
    most of my Wal-mart batteries (the $30 Wal-marts were Delco).

    I don't understand how voltage that fluctuates from 12.80=15.45V can
    affect the accuracy of your fuel guage because the instrument cluster
    has its own voltage regulator that probably drops the input to about
    10V. And why would such a variation in voltage hurt the fuel delivery
    when those voltages are within the normal range for an alternator, and
    the fuel system has a pressure regulator that I think should
    compensate for changes in pressure?

    What do you mean by "Current+Voltage will jump from 12.80v to 13.76v,
    also to 15.45v"? Those numbers are voltage only, not current, and
    isn't "Current+Voltage" a nonsense term because you can't add volts to
    amps?

    Tom's using the high quality tester on his battery charger: "you should
    test Wal-mart battery yourself by using a charging system with a Current
    Meter". I don't think it's occurred to him that a trickle charger sometimes
    spikes. Perhaps you need to verify what you're saying by using a
    current/volt meter to validate your statements.
    Driving for 30+ years doesn't mean crap and your name calling of others
    indicates the type of person you really are. The bottom line is you didn't
    check things 1st and now you blame others. Call others what you like, but
    you're we all know what you really are.
