I fully sympathise with people who are looking for auto parts but haven’t got a clue about cars in general, only recently I was searching the net for a guide to cooking utensils and must admit that I was equally confused. The problem lies in the fact that much of the time internet users are relying on ineffective means of obtaining information. It’s very hard to find specific pricings on particular car batteries from an article because there are too many different ones out there. I have seen many guides attempt to give readers a ballpark figure of how much some of these batteries should cost by listing the prices of one or two different brands, this is very unhelpful because more people want exact prices and not a rough estimate.
By far and away the easiest way to figure out what to you need to pay is by visiting automotive parts retailers. Of course you need to know exactly what you’re looking for otherwise you’ll have no chance, the best way to do this in my opinion is to visit autozone.com and use their car battery search tool. Having done this you can now use Google Shopping to compare all the different car battery prices offered on websites, just a quick tip, it’s never good practice to simply purchase from the cheapest retailer, often times these may be very obscure retailers who don’t have a proven track record or extensive customer feedback to rely on.
If you do want to find out how battery prices are compiled then this may be the only case where internet articles can help you, having said that most of them will simply relay the same information over and over again, that prices are determined by various factors including warranty, brand name and cold crank amps.
