Just say 'NO' to knock-off batteries

A while back, I ordered a new battery. Looked for the cheapest one just to diagnose some problems. Installed the battery and went to start it when everything went dead.

In short, the bracket that's spot welded to the lead terminal un-welded itself. Wiggled the other terminal, and it came loose as well. :banghead:


I'm waiting for a store to open right now so I can call and verify that they sell genuine Yuasa batteries. Batteries made in China are cheap for a reason, as I found out. :whistle:
