I recently bought a new "Duralast Gold" car battery at AutoZone.
The battery model is 34-DLG. On the cover over the cell ports (where
you check the level of the electrolyte for each cell) is the standard
Warning regarding battery acid.
There is NO "Maintenance Free" or "Service Free" anywhere
on this battery. Also, there is "nothing" on my receipt. Therefore, I
have the impression this battery is not a "Maintenance Free" battery.
Note: When I buy a new battery, if it is NOT a "service free"
battery, I always check to make sure that each cell has the
proper level of electrolyte..
Removing the cover for the cell ports is a MAJOR ORDEAL.
I eventually removed this EXTREMPLY TIGHT FITTING
I called AutoZone and the person did NOT know if this
is a "service free" battery!!!
Does anyone know if this Duralast Gold, model 34-DLG
is a "Maintenance Free" battery?
Thanks in advance, John
