Walmart Battery Finder

I remember awhile back when the touchscreen battery finder didn't have Merkur on the list. Now it's on there. It pops up Maxx T5. I looked and they had three of them at $120 no core needed. It even said battery cable change required. I had no idea they were such experts on the Merkur.

I am using a 96R type battery in mine and it is rated at 590 CCA, which is why I chose it. It is a straight drop in. A 47 or 48 series will also work (H5 is like a 48 series in size.) I thought of using a 48AGM but they don't like high heat... The original battery connection was stupid and mine went to normal US style with the first battery change in '88.

Cheers

Advanced Auto says use their 47H but it costs $175
My first XR came with a group size 58 that is just a little too big to sit level.
My second came with no battery and I got the duralast 42-DL
Just spin it around and put a spacer it there and it fits nice.

I am on my second group 47/H5 Walmart battery in my Scorpio.

The first one died after about a year and a half. I was happy they replaced no questions asked.
Unfortunately it was disappointing to see many other returned batteries behind the customer service counter.

The second one seems fine, but we will see. When I grabbed the second battery I took my time to check the date codes on the battery to get the most recently made battery. As it goes for a gallon of milk so it goes for Walmart batteries.

I live close to East Penn Mfg that manufactures Deka batteries. I always buy their 2nds at the factory. Their 2nds have only a case defect, so they are only sold at factory. Unfortunately, they only have a 30 day warrenty. I pay about $80 and less a discount for core.

If anyone wants one at Carlisle, contact me, I'll get a current price. Payment in advance and I'll deliver at Carlisle.
