I’d guess Lifecycle Technology is a marketing term, not a manufacturer. I did a web search and found no reference to the term at all. If it is a manufacturer, I should have found something.
Lifecycle Technology sounds like something the sales department created.
Since this very old post was revived, my understanding is there are only a few battery manufacturers producing the various brands.
The warranties are a number game too.
That is very interesting
I live in Los Angeles, and our Costco now carries Interstate batteries . . . but they’re no longer pro-rated
Once the free replacement period is up, that’s it
It’s simpler for everybody involved, but not necessarily better
About 4 years ago, I bought a Kirkland signature battery at Costco
A few months ago, I discovered it was bad. I was past the free replacement period, but I was in the 50% pro-rated period. So I only paid 1/2 price for a new battery, which was an Interstate
So if this Interstate battery also fails after 4 years, I’ll have to pay the entire price of a new battery
I wonder if the Kirkland signature batteries sold in Canada are still made by Johnson Controls . . .
