This is up in Canada. 3+ yr old 24F JC/everstart maxx battery started to act up. Passed by walmart to see if they have fresh battery in stock before I haul mine over for testing. I noticed the casing looks different. The warranty is different. Nowhere on the label is JC mentioned. There is no melted in code on the side(one way to determine production time for JC). Instead of 3yr replace and 9yr prorate like my old battery(JC), it now has 3yr and 5yr respectively. There are no caps on the top. The top of unit is flush. CCA is 725 instead of 700. The date sticker went from mm/yy to alphabet + number like B6 which I think mean, Feb 2016. I also have picture of Kirkland from Costco which is made by JC for comparison. Did Walmart start sourcing from another manufacturer or this is some new updated model?
