Die Hard Car Battery Review and Guide

In 1967 the Die Hard car battery brand was announced as a Sears house brand. It took nine years and over $1 million in research and development for them to come out with a redesigned battery to revolutionize the battery industry. The battery itself was designed to provide 35% more starting power than other batteries of its kind- 45 years later the Die Hard brand is one of the most wanted brands by a margin of 3 to 1. The actual name was a play on words, during the intensive testing of the battery, there was not a single failure, thus the name “Die Hard” or hard to kill. Since then the batteries have undergone many different torture tests from jumping four cars on a single Platinum battery frozen in a solid block of ice to being shot with a rifle at close range, blowing the case in half, and still starting a truck because of the AGM design.

Where to buy

The Die Hard car battery is only sold at Sears and Kmart websites as well as in retail stores. Many of the stores have auto centers within them to have the battery installed by a professional technician. There is usually a fee to have this done, but a qualified technician will be able to install it correctly, and the battery will usually come with a warranty.

Overview

Having so many different quality levels to choose from you can be sure that you will find the right battery to fit your needs. Batteries need to handle different conditions with different climates. Therefore you have options such as a battery built for the north with a greater CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) rating or a battery built for the south with thicker plates to reduce corrosion. While some people choose to have a battery that will be able to crank anything, most simply need it to simply start their car or truck. There is no harm in going bigger, but it can cause a great deal of frustration if the 75 electronic items that you run kill the battery in an hour if the battery¬† wasn’t designed to handle that kind of load.
