MF Battery

I was in an OReilly auto parts store last night and noticed their store brand batteries had an MF battery for our bikes. I was wondering if anyone had any info on it as the store folks were clueless. I would assume that there are only a few MF battery makers in the world so I wonder who makes it? It was about $71 or so so the price is competetive with mail order. $60 or so for the battery and $10-15 for shipping.

Get the number of it. Part number or such. There MUST be a number! I must have a number! (clearing throat), um, too much Stargate.

Usually the number will come close to the number of the manufacturer. The number should be the one on the battery, not the part number that O'reilly uses.

I'll try but the batteries are sealed in a box. I couldn't open the box to see the battery but I'll see what I can do.
