Made by Johnson Controls.... Same as the Wal Mart Everstart and Maxx... I think Sears as well... I have gotten at the least 4 years out of all of the Everstarts I have used.. I have 2 now that are 4 years old and still going

Luckily for me, it'* only 85+ degrees nine months out of the year.

Hotter than heck today (high 80s), and I drove for 2 hours. Not a hint of surge or jerking. It may not be a cure, but it'* a really good band-aid.
