Just like cars, not all batteries are created equal. Batteries are not something you need to buy everyday, especially car batteries. Battery Joe understands how confusing it might be when one of our guys starts spouting off about different technologies and sizes and types of battery. Thats why we put together a handly little guide with some fairly simple explanations about what we call SLI batteries (Starting, Lighting & Ignition).
