Group Buy anyone??

After reading various posts/threads here, all Yaris/Echo owners have had good experience with the OEM batteries (Panasonic & FB) and since we can't find them here in NA, may be we can start a Group Buy and import a pallet full in a slow boat for members!

I'm no expert in import/export, may be members with knowledge can voice their opinions whether this is doable?

My Echo also had the Panasonic battery. :)

I am now using an ever start battery from Walmart. LOL
I can't justify spending more

It's dangerous goods though.

My 07 hatch battery lasted about 8 years, it went out last year and I replaced it with the Interstate 51R battery from Costco for $55.

I tried to maintain it by adding distilled water and for some reason it weakened the battery somehow. I then added epsom salt to it as I saw in some Youtube videos and it got a little better before I my car to Las Vegas for a trip where the heat finished it off.
