There is always that one guy who wants to play but doesn't have anything to add to the conversation. Today you are that guy. I have an idea for something you can do. List the typos on the home page of the website I shared.
It seemed like a legit point. I didn’t read it as attacking you personally. Maybe bc I’m so new to the JEEP family I can’t read between the lines.

Eyve lurnd too nott appleye morer brake pedle….oh hell….
.anyhew….as long as I keep pressure off ESS won’t latch, oh but sometimes ESS gets me. I’m patiently waiting for my battery drama to start though.
So going easy on the brake will reduce that? Gotta try that.

I get your point. Some pf the narrative written with Chinese products is beyond bad. I tend to look at websites and product narrative as a function of quality. I’m done buying china junk and typically go out of my way to buy US stuff if I can.
When I use “made in USA” as a filter on Amazon for ANYTHING, the results lust drops significantly.

I don't believe either one of us is butt hurt over the exchange. I did not feel attacked. My reply was meant as a tease. I liked LouisvErlle's response.

One of the deciding points when I purchased the SmartStopStart was a recommendation from a member here. A couple of typo's on the webpage are meaningless to me.

LouisvErlle is just a bitter Cards fan. 😂😂😂😂😂 Jk. He’s nice. I just thought someone was being mean to you and thought that yeah, when I read instructions or guidance, especially from Amazon purchases, that it was Chinese made which is often of cheaper quality, particularly when dealing with steel. Didn’t mean to butt in.

That's one reason people need to take a second look.
I don't have any device, I just hit the button after I start my Gladiator and I saved a hundred bucks.
If anyone wants to buy something to eliminate the start/stop here's a company that has an actual address.

I hit the button (sometimes) for 3 years. Now I don't have too.

I guess the address is good if you want to visit. The SmartStopStart webpage provided a phone number, a name, and an email address. I sent Steve an email before buying. The response was same day. Added to this was a strong recommendation from another member here. That was good enough for me. Throw in fast shipping and delivering exactly what was advertised and it equals a very pleased customer.

Yes. Slow and deliberate would be a way to describe. Also if brake fast and and hard as soon as truck is rest unload some pressure. My ESS doesn’t latch much. There are some stop lights that will be red for nine years so I let ESS do its thing.

Being a Cards fan can make you bitter. I thought the bunch of us made a pretty good joke out of the issue.

My SmartStopStart buy was not from Amazon. SSS may have an Amazon presence, but I dealt directly with Steve (the owner/seller).


I expect all of the stop/start devices are made somewhere off-shore.

BTW, I took my Gladiator out today to take my household trash to the county dump. I did not have a thought about the stop/start or the battery. :) Life is good.

What the diff? I’m ignorant as to mechanics and electronics. Why get a bigger battery?

My thought process was to end up with nearly the same cold cranking amps as the 2 Mopar batteries combined. I picked this path because the 2 Mopar batteries are combined as one during all operations except a stop/start event (there is also millisecond event when cranking where the batteries are separated for testing). The batteries are connected for all starts.

The Mopar main battery comes in either 600 CCA or 700 CCA, depending on optional equipment. The Mopar aux batteries that I have seen are 200 CCA. That makes my target 800 CCA or 900 CCA. The Walmart Everstart battery has 850 CCA, falling between the 2 Mopar combinations. The Walmart battery also has a 4 year warranty compared to Mopar's 3 year warranty.

A single smaller main battery would probably work OK for normal operation but I wanted all the CCA I could get since I planning to use my winch.

Not only that, but ideally you have the alternator running at a high idle to supplement the winch. A small battery would be killed running a typical winch on a Jeep.
I can't imagine fitting anything in that space strong enough to do any real work at all - maybe start my Kawasaki V-twin John Deere lawn tractor engine? Maybe.....
Yeah, that small of a battery doesn't like running much of a winch, probably what has helped killing a few batteries in my old 4wheeler, it uses a similar battery. It's on it's 2nd or 3rd winch even. 🫢

Bill, in last number of years I've been using a few Walmart branded AGM vehicle batteries without any problems. My Wrangler (LJ) is currently using one that actually would fit in a gas JT. When I was buying a new battery for it the store pulled up my JT as the vehicle. I just rolled with it and find it's even better for me moving the positive terminal inboard from fender.

People Work?
We took the Subaru yesterday to do my dad's housekeeping for him.
I got buckled in, hit the start button, and then reached for the ESS button that wasn't there.
Once it becomes muscle memory it's there. No doo-dads needed.

You should have seen me when seat belts first became law here decades ago. I'd get on my motorcycle and reach down............ uh, no.........
For a long time after trading trucks I was still reaching to put a key into an ignition lock.
I can't tell how many times my right hand went up for a shift lever that wasn't there.
I try to push the clutch pedal on my Javelin after driving the SX4 for a while. There isn't one on the Javelin.
