- Jun 19, 2013Actually 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
