What are the top-rated car battery brands?

I want to buy a reliable battery that I can count on for several years. What are some of the top-rated car battery brands?

“There are only three major manufacturers of batteries in the United States: Johnson Controls, East Penn, and Exide.
If you’ve never heard of these brands, you shouldn’t be surprised. All of these manufacturers market their batteries under various names. However, if you look at consumer reviews, these batteries get the best marks for reliability and value:
  • ACDelco
  • Diehard
  • Bosch
  • Duralast
  • Optima
While major brands are popular, you may be able to find some high-quality lesser-known brands at a fraction of the cost. You can always read additional reviews online to determine what the best battery is for you.
While investing in reliable products is an important part of car security, it never hurts to add a little extra coverage in case you ever find yourself in a pinch. You can get jumpstarts and towing through Jerry’s partner Urgently for only $50 a year. You never want your battery to die, but it feels good knowing you would be taken care of should you ever need the help.”
