Let's hope so! Chinese businesses deliver only as much quality and
performance as their customers demands. If their customer is a US
company that only demands low price -- then he gets no performance and
no quality.

The situation won't change until US consumers have the backbone to say,
"This is junk! I demand a product that works, or my money back!"

Sam's Club still has Exides for about $75 each. They are not as good a
battery as the Trojans or USBs, but OK for a learner pack.

Remember "A Christmas Car", the story I wrote about ten years ago, in
which the oil industry was buying up all the alternative battery
technologies, and getting lead banned as a dangerous toxin to get all
the hopeful EV batteries off the market? Sometimes truth is stranger
than fiction! :-(
