      Actually Jack, you are partially correct.Die Hard batteries are made by Johnson Controls. The same people make 80% of all the batteries. They make batteries for Wal-Mart  right alongside of the Die Hard made for SEARS.

      Bill - Unless they've changed what they do, DIE HARD uses the same
      plates and separaters in the cells as all the other medium-to-high
      priced batteries. Probably the internal components are all manufactured
      in the same factory in China or somewhere, sold to all the battery
      manufacturing plants of all brands, same components.

      All DIE HARD did to make the batteries hotter was lower the PH of the
      acid, giving it further to go before it loses everything.

      The only problem was the lower PH reduces the life of the plates more
      quickly than happens with a higher PH. Lowering the PH without
      thickening the plates equals plates eaten from zero-to-sixty a lot
      sooner than a person might wish.

      Just saying. Jack
