Worldwide Battery Pricing


Senior Member
As of January 1, 2007, the Chinese government is dropping price support on the manufacturing of sealed lead acid batteries since they own the worlds production now. That 15% support plus the increase in the price of Lead and plastic is causing a worldwide jump in the price of sealed lead acid batteries. From your alarm system to your car, all the batteries are going up in price. I have heard 20 to 40%. :(

Every now and again the wife reminds me of where I have some lead stored !

I might have to design my own recovery system !
