    The auto parts whse. that I work sent out a memo today announcing that core charge on batteries has increased to 10.00, an increase from 5.00. The battery companies are not receiving adequate cores and are having to buy new lead at market prices.

    Nothing was mentioned about a battery price increase but Im sure its on the way...Im surprised its taken this long.

    Regards Gerald

    <i>The more cranking amps the more lead?</i>

    Not necessarily but battery strength is dependent on the surface area of the plates.
