I just bought a new battery for the S-10

Since when does a regular lead-acid battery- for a small V-6 cost on the plus side of $100?

It's just a farging car battery, and not even a marine battery.

Has the 0bama administration gotten so intrusive with the EPA and regulations that they tripled the cost of a 690 Amp battery in three years?


  1. I know! About knocked my socks off when I had to get a new one for the Z71 about six months ago. I have no idea why the major price increase, either.

  2. I bought one for son's truck a month or so ago. Looks like the price has doubled since the last time I bought a battery.

    It was a shock, to say the least.

  3. Some are $140. When I sold Interstates, their best was $60 retail.

  4. mostly, they aren't just lead acid any more. jels and lead alloys add to the cost.


I've had to enable moderation because some bots just can't stop sh1tting where other people want to live......kind of like Liberals.

It's either this or WV...
