The EverStart MAXX-35N (North) is part of the car battery
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, car battery
models like the MAXX-35N (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 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.

Since my old battery left me stranded after more than 5 years of use I got this battery since it was recommended. It started up everytime this tough winter. The only thing I noticed was that the battery was marked as made in January 2013 but Walmart sold it to me in December 2013 with their own sticker of 12/2013. I'm hoping that it was refurbished and it will last at least 5 years. I will try to update.

Battery Done After 2yrs 7mos-So-So-Ehhhh
3 Year Free Replacement
Battery 25 -3 Yrs Likely
Battery Approx 25-3yrs
Persist W Wally Custsvc
Up To 3yr Life Givetake
I used Battery size 35 on a 99 Honda Accord completely stock-no fancy electronic doo-dads of any sort.<br />Climate-New Jersey seasons/Northeast<br />I bought battery in June 2011 and battery was done in January 2014 (2 yrs, 7mos.)<br />It looks as if these batteries are engineered to be done after 3 years but I guess mine dying at 2 yrs 7mos was fortunate as it fell in the 3 yr free replacement period. When I brought back to Wallys, without my receipt they were able to pull up my purchase date by battery serial# I did have to persist that they honor their very conspicuously placed sticker stating 3yr free replacement. THis Battery and other Everstart Maxx batteries on other cars seem to promote lots of blue corrosive action on your cars battery terminals compromising them. Its likely leaking a gas from the base of the two posts of battery.

Good battery, but only last 3 years
Died Right After Warranty
Purchased this battery and exactly 2 weeks after the warranty the battery shorted out and overflowed acid into the engine compartment. It just became weaker and weaker. The battery was hot when I took it to the store, I presume due to the internal shorting. The associate rolled it back outside, ha. Typical Wal-Mart quality.<br />If you going to have the car for under 3 more years, this battery is fine. Otherwise, get something else.
