    .

    I've found that a cheap battery is usually the most expensive long term.

    Tractor supply has a couple inexpensive ones that work very well and wal-mart has a value line now.
    And a couple places here in the city to get 45 dollar ones and the local salvage yard will usually have a few good ones.

    I just got 2 for 35 each plus a core.
    I would look at the salvages first.

    Do NOT go to walmart for a neverstart, I mean everstart. You'll be back in a month asking for a return.

    Get something of decent quality like Continental, Interstate or Duracell.

    There are only a few automotive (lead-acid) battery manufacturers in the US. No matter the brand, it's made by one of these.

    I usually go for the cheapest one with a good warranty-to-price ratio that I can find.

    I usually buy Interstate but damn they are expensive.

    I ended up getting a $45 battery at Atwoods. It's got a 12 month warranty. I'll see how long it lasts.

    I've been using Sam's Club. Duracell batteries. I had a pair in my diesel truck that went totally bad 5 days before the 3 year warranty expired. Got 2 new batteries with a 5 day warranty that lasted another 3 years.
    The Sam's tech also fixed a leaky tire problem that Robertson's was unable to resolve - at no charge.
