Lead-acid battery manufacturers and brand names list 2018 types of electricity generation methods


Lead-acid battery manufacturers, distributors, exporters/importers, large chain/auto parts stores, or major dealers will often private label their batteries, for example in the North America, EverStart is private label for Walmart and DieHard for Sears and Kmart. These stores might have these private labeled batteries made by several manufacturers depending on the location to reduce shipping costs or to provide different types or sizes of batteries. Contracts with manufacturers might change. Below is an alphabetical list of some of the hundreds of global battery manufacturers, joint ventures, distributors, and major dealers with some of their brand names, trademarks, private labels and contact information. The battery manufacturers are in bold type. Ownership, supplier contracts, branding, and contact information are subject to change, merger/acquisition or closure.

To identify the manufacturer, ask the dealer or check the battery’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). The manufacturer’s code number on the battery will also identify the manufacturer. For differentiating quality, features or warranty periods, battery manufacturers will sometimes have product lines within a trademark or brand, for example, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Titanium, Premium, Heavy Duty, Commercial, Standard, Plus, Turbo, Calcium, Classic, Maintenance Free (MF), etc. They will also contract with other manufacturers to build and private label batteries to complete their product lines, for example, specialty batteries, that are not economically feasible to build themselves. Motorcycle batteries are listed in the Powersports starting classification and motive, traction, standby, stationary, solar, and Valve Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) AGM and Gel Cell. Sealed Lead-Acid (SLA) batteries are classified as deep cycle batteries.

Trademarks, brand names and registrations are owned by their respective companies and are as shown below.

Battery Selector or Fitment Guides allow you to determine the correct replacement starting battery for your vehicle based on the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended specifications, such as Cold Cranking Amps, (CCAs), Amp Hour capacity or the BCI Group Number or ETN size. A good manufacturers cross reference list for Sealed Lead-Acid (SLA) deep cycle batteries can be found on the Battery Solutions Web site.
