Need new battery for the Triton, Hitachi anywhere?

Recommended Posts

My Mitsu is 4 years old and the Hitachi battery has lasted that long, but now is getting a bit sluggish, so considering the Hitachi has given me that long seems like it would be a good idea to buy the same brand. Anyone seen Hitachi selling anywhere?

 OK, found a Hitachi locally, 3500 baht less 500 for the old battery. Hope it gives me the same service as the old one.

Is that good or bad? Figured I'd stick with the brand that's given good service.

It seems one big difference between brands is quality control.

It's possible to get a good battery from a "bad" brand, but it's more likely to get a good battery from a "good" brand with QC.

And it's unlikely to get a bad battery from a good brand because of that QC.
