About - EverStart MAXX-75N (North)

The EverStart MAXX-75N (North) is part of the car battery test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, car battery models like the MAXX-75N (North) are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Life:
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:
CCA performance reflects voltage at our load of half the average claimed CCA for each group size after cranking for 15 seconds at 0ยบ 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.

Bought a MAXX-75N in 2007 at Walmart, it lasted 6 years, returned it and got $24 back (it had a 9-year pro-rated warranty) towards the purchase of a new one. The new MAXX-75N works great.

Comment:
I purchased the first battery , it died on my, went to Walmart store for replacement, in less than a year it died and Walmart refused to replace it as it is claimed on the battery. Missed my drug screen appointment, Walmart is not the right place for your auto needs and spend little bit of more money but buy from auto specialist stores. Never ever use Everstart Maxx battery.
