Ok one more about FCA batteries...
Found a company named Magneti Marelli, an Italian (well...) company with offices everywhere. They make (or rather distribute) Mopar batteries :
(^^That's the KL AGM battery).
Magneti Marelli was purchased by... drum roll... Sergio. Yeah that Sergio (FCA boss).
Found another site, not really current but good enough, which lists battery brands and who makes them, and Magneti Marelli falls under the Exide group...
Reading more and trying to understand who makes what and who went into joint ventures with whom... is a very complex mission. One thing I did find is Johnson Controls are in a joint venture with FCA for car parts other than batteries in the Serbian market... Yeah, the *global market* thing is no joke...
I still haven't found a perfect match for my 700CCA AGM yet, but I know it falls under the Exide group (also JC ??).
One thing I do know : if/when I need a new battery, I'm going with this one (840CCA group 94R) :
Or... if I find a slightly larger one fits in the tray and doesn't short out against the hood above it, this one :
(not that much more CCAs, but a nice reserve capacity increase... This group 27F battery is 1.4" taller than a group 94R)
