Mine are going on year six......

However my Wal*Mart batteries were made by US Battery for Johnson Controls who then sold them to Wal*Mart. US Battery makes excellent quality batteries, some of the best "12V marine" batteries, & 6V, other than Trojan..

Wal*Mart has since sourced a less expensive replacement for the batteries I have and they are NOT the same. I can't however comment on the longevity because I stopped using them due to the "lack of a clue" about batteries that Wal*Mart exhibits. Sam's Club, the sister company, took on Deka/East Penn so that is a HUGE + !!
