Places in DFW that sells Braille batteries?

Know of anywhere in DFW that sells Braille batteries? PST didn't list them and their website is kinda broke.

Yeah I would call PST instead of using their site at this time.

What about calling Batteries Plus battery store - All your battery needs for Laptop, camera, cell phone, camcorder, SLA, batteries recycling and much more ? I doubt they have Braille but... are there not other small motorcycle like batteries that would work?

Just get a Deka.

Braille sources their batteries from Deka, then doubles the price.

Its the same F'ing battery - for real.

If true his next question might be, "where do I get a Deka battery in the DFW area?" lol

$78 total price out the door for EXT14, which is the same as the Braille 14115. Its more of a distribution center that also happens to sell individual units to the public.






Battery mounted in place of Braille no problem.



Definently recommend them if you need a replacement or looking at something lightweight but want to save about 60% over the cost of a Braille.

Anyone know where/if I can get Deka's local in Houston? Forget it, I called the company and it turns out that they make the Oreilly batteries with the same part number! So I am off to get the Oreilly ETX14. $76.99 plus tax.

Bought the ETX20L at Advance Autoparts online for $81 + tax and picked it up in the store. Regular price is $111 including core and I had a $30 coupon code.

O'Rielly has it for $98 + tax including core charge.

Deka ETX14 is dead after almost exactly 3 years. Not terrible for something that could barely start the car as is. It has the voltage, but won't hold enough current to start the car after 12 hours. Will get another one.
