Mine was 10/07 build date and also still going strong. Replaced it today with a Duracell H6 AGM from Batteries+Bulbs, full 4-year replacement warranty.

Interestingly, the battery says "Made in Germany" on it. East Penn is allegedly the OEM for Duracell, and the ones that Sams Club shows all say "Made in USA" on them, but this one is apparently supplied by somebody else. All I care about is the 4-year full replacement warranty, that's some solid peace of mind, especially here in Arizona, where batteries go to die.

Had to replace me battery after 9 years. Amazon has an ACDelco AGM 48/h6 battery for 168.08 but with a 20% off coupon. Best price I could find and includes 2 day shipping with my prime membership.

I put that battery in my (former) ZHP and it died after less than 2 years. Local ACDelco dealer refused to warranty it, claiming it checked out "ok", but it was clearly unable to hold a charge. Hopefully you have better luck.

My Duralast H6 AGM isn't holding a charge anymore after 4.5 years. The car had always felt weak starting since day 1 - you know, the feeling that the starter is strained? But it always turned over, just not as quickly as my X5. It gave me a scare on a few cold mornings. Decided to put in an Bosch H7 AGM today since Pep Boys is running a 25% off until the end of the month. WOW - the starter seemed so energized - No more slow, belaboring turning over! I am more than happy to sacrifice a bit of weight gain for the reassurance that it won't die on me on a cold day.
