All cheep azzes like me will be happy to hear this: There are actually only two battery manufacturers remaining in the USA...Johnson Controls and another I can't remember.
Another cheap azz here...
FYI, I know of at least three battery manufacturers with plants in the USA. Johnson Controls, Exide and East Penn Manufacturing (some people know them better as DEKA).
Last week I just bought a new, "blemished" (aka a 2nd) battery at the East Penn factory store for one of my vehicles. Saved $118 compared to buying essentially the same battery they make for AutoZone. The 2nds do have a VERY limited warranty but I don't care given what I paid and their reputation. Someone I know at one of my clients has been buying the East Penn 2nds for the last 20+ years with little to no issues. When it comes time to replace the battery in my Tundra or my car trailer I will consider another East Penn battery.
