About - EverStart Maxx-34N (North)

The EverStart Maxx-34N (North) is part of the car battery test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, car battery models like the Maxx-34N (North) are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Life test measures how a battery endures repeated charge-and-discharge cycles at hot-climate engine-compartment temperatures. The more cycles endured while maintaining a higher voltage, the higher the score.

Reserve capacity:
Reserve capacity estimates how long batteries can run a car if the charging system fails.

CCA performance reflects voltage at our load of half the average claimed CCA for each group size after cranking for 15 seconds at 0º F. We charged batteries at the 14.5 volts that vehicles typically supply, rather than the higher voltage that manufacturers use. Batteries charged at the lower voltage met BCI voltage standards for a fully charged battery.

Two year battery
Best Uses
I have had three of these batteries (only because of the warranty replacement policy). None have last more than 26 months. By comparison, Diehard batteries used to last 5 or 6 years!

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Walamart Everstart
