Have you ever noticed when shopping for a car battery that there are two or three seemingly identical batteries on the shelf appropriately rated for your car, but the prices vary considerably? Why should one battery cost $20 more than the battery next to it?

Nathan Merrill, owner of Good Works Auto Repair in Arizona, explains in this video that lower-quality batteries tend to “sweat” battery acid, which corrodes the surfaces surrounding the battery. He shares actual footage of corrosion completely destroying a car’s $450 battery cable. In some cases, automotive battery cables can cost as much as $700 – certainly not worth the $20 savings on a low-quality battery!
