Battery Reviews and Complaints
Oreilly Auto Parts - Bad battery with a 3 yr warranty still not replaced
Paid $192 for a 900 amp battery to get stuck with a non working piece of plastic. I purchase about $1100 worth of goods from them every quarter to facilitate my Limo repairs. Buyers beware!!!!!
Lazada Philippines - Fake 18650 batteries
Lot of fake products on Lazada. For example Ultrafire 18650 batteries.
Ultrafire does not make any 18650 battery above 4000mah but there are lots of sellers trying to dump 6800mah and higher batteries.
They are selling used lap top batteries that have been stripped and rewrapped in China. The weights for these monster capacity batteries are less than legit 3000mah batteries. Bought a pair of fake LG 3000mah batteries from Lazada and they weighed 39g each, they are supposed to weigh 44g-46g each.
Capacity tested only 1261 and 1321mah instead of near or above 3000mah. Near dead counterfeit batteries for sale on Lazada.
Lazada does not seem to really care if their sellers are selling fake products, Don't have to be a expert to know that there are no 18650 batteries above 4000mah but Lazada continues to allow the sale of these fakes.
Amazon - Phone battery failed soon after purchase
Bought this on Amazon. After maybe three full charges, it has stopped taking full charges. Now Amazon is not accepting reviews of theirs piece of junk.
Walmart warranty (not)
Ok so here I sit at walmart to get my battery exchanged and the guy tells me that I have about 1 month left on my warranty and to expect about a 5 to 10 dollar credit BUT the new battery that they are about to install will only be warranted for the 1 month because that's all that's left on the old batteries warranty
What the ***
You are installing a new 5 year battery
He tells me if I want the 5 year warranty I have to buy a new battery straight up and forget about the prorated credit.
Now I remember why I hate walmart
Advance Auto Parts - Pissed off customer
I went to advance auto parts on Sunday at 6:08 PM I was helped by a guy named Greg well I walked in the store right up to the counter with the battery and I explained to him I “think” I need a battery employee did not offer to test my old battery and just brought me out a new battery never told me that there was a no return policy on batteries. So today after work I went to return my battery and the rude manager stated that there was a no return policy for batteries I will never shop here again!! Will be calling the 1888 number as soon as they open
Amazon - Poor Support On Products With Their Name on it
I had purchased some AAA rechargeable batteries from Amazon assuming they would use a reputable manufacturer to make their batteries. Not so as the batteries ended up corroding in 3 lights I used them in, a battery charger and it destroyed them for future use.
I sent them the pictures I've posted here and they did nothing, not even replacing the bad batteries. Interesting as they've pretty much supported other items without their name on it without question but guess they don't support their own products. I've spent thousands of dollars with them and will continue to use them but have started shopping elsewhere for products I don't need immediately and the price is just as good.
Amazon has made it easy for us to do shopping but think they are getting "too big for their britches". Doubt the loss of my business will dent them too much but it's my way of saying I think you should stand behind the products you endorse.
Advance Auto Parts - *** battery
Took battery to store to test. Said its good.
My mechanic said it had several bad cells. 8 months old. Gold battery. Tester was gm.
Car wouldnt start next morning. Back to store. Called corporate. No actual people to talk to.
Ended up going to auto zone for a battery. Car starts right up last 3 days.
Smok H Priv 2
Just ordered brand new batteries for my brand new Smok vape and it won’t fire. There are no signs of life. Checked to make sure batteries are in correctly and nada, zilch, zip!
Oreilly Auto Parts - Super Starter battery smoking
I got up at 5:00 to the smell of a rotten eggs in my house. I went outside thinking maybe it was a gas leak, and there was nothing.
Came back in the house and looked for the source and my son goes into the garage to find the O'Reilly's Super Starter battery was smoking. So this was the horrendous smell that was filling up my house. We were breathing the sulfuric acid that was emitting from the battery filling up my whole house. The smell was horrendous.
This could have started a fire or worse. Smelling the sulfuric acid could have had serious injury to me, my son and my pets. This was a health hazard
I have been buying my batteries from O'Reilly's for years. The batter was bought in February 2018, so the batter was not that old. It was not a cheap battery either.
I am going to be hesitant to buy another battery from O'Reilly's again. Compensation needs to be provided by O'Reilly's.
Advance Auto Parts - Battery
I was looking for battery pricing,the employee pursued me to buy the battery,told me that the same price will be anywhere else the same.I bought it,it was the wrong item,tried to return it and got robbed for $165 because later they say it was non-refundable. No one explained that if I purchased it, it would be non-refundable!
