LOL
That isn't surprising. If that is what they send me I'll get to find out what Sears will do about it.
I wouldn't mind having a few sets of those but not at that price.

Sorry Bill and others. I had high hopes for you.

I went ahead and called East Penn (Deka) customer support directly and he said they stopped making the 353 about a year ago. Nothing in group 53 case size now.

Good info. Maybe it is a good thing that we don't get batteries that have been sitting on a shelf for over a year. They may have been worthless.

I think my Wife was right you could defiantly use them as keychains. I still think mine will be a battery. LOL

Think we can get them to make the group 53 in lithium ion? ha-ha! Then we could get one for $800.

I received a small box today. I started a return with WalMart and this is what they said:
"Perfect we made a process directly with 3rd party to be resolved of course fast as possible, Now in the next hours you will be notified via email regarding all details about it as well. I made everything what is on my hands at the moment to resolve it, I will recommend to stay tuned to your email please. NO of course, thank you for your time I really appreciate it. System was stuck, not my fault I apologize"

I'm not really sure what all that means.

That doesn't sound like something from Walmart, is this a 3rd party seller that uses walmart.com

Found a company that 'claims' they have them in stock.. pricey though $250.00, but at least shipping is free....

Currently trying to contact them.... not very responsive....

If it is the Deka battery and they quit making them over a year ago any of them you find would be suspect if they are wet.
