Totally agree with this post.Here's the thing though......please don't be offended by this......but you bought a battery with a 1 year warranty, it lasted a year.......why should walmart be held to a standard above that? In a former career I managed a sears appliance store, people were always coming in two, three, even five years down the road complaining that the appliance broke, and they thought sears should fix it. While I don't buy into protection plans, they are an option if you don't want to take the risk of an appliance (or battery) breaking. A company should, whether it be walmart, powermatic, or bmw, build or sell a product that will last a minimum of its warranty period, if that period isn't long enough for you, consider a better quality product, a warranty, or a different brand. Walmart sells that battery for a reason, customers demand a cheap battery, i'm out on a limb here, but i'm guessing it was the cheapest battery they had when you bought it. What is the reason for thinking they should stand behind the product for longer than the warranty, when you chose not to pay for the quality you were demanding?
Sorry.....again....please don't be offended, most of my rant is directed at the population as a whole today.....
