The only small battery I buy is NAPA battery. Have had the best luck with them. Any other battery I use Interstate. Have for many , many years.

Don't trash your jumper cables. I have to agree on the NAPA batteries.

Little low on the CCA for cold climates.Might want to keep it on a battery tender all winter long to keep it from freezing.Any battery that I've had under 300cca or so has frozen over the last couple of years.The 230 cca batteries I got from wallmart over the years have all either froze or died after only a couple years.I have a 360CCA napa battery in my old sears and it seems to be doing good yet after 6 years.
I lost a cheap 2 year old 250cca sears diehard battery this year do to freezing.I keep a couple batteries on the shelf in my shed but there's no power in the shed for a tender.

That does seem small. I try to get the 340 or so amp/hr for most of mine. I DO buy wally world but never keep tractors long enough usually to see if they last, heh! Also get from my local parts house, but don't recall brand at moment. At $15, if it don't last more than the one year, still not a big loss really, unless you are buying Many of them for Many tractors all the time.

I get my small battery's from fleet farm some have lasted 2 years and some just make it past the 6 month warranty,but for $16 I can't complain.

To the OP, $15 is a really good price. Look closely at the fine print on the label. It should say who actually made it. There's only three big battery manufacturers but a lot of different labels they put on the cases so I'm sure yours will be fine.
