The battery will work fine for 2-3 seasons provided you keep it charged.
My kids have enjoyed these for years, A new battery will last most of the day, and I do have hills. By the third season the charge won't hold very long.

The quickest way to ruin lead-acid batteries is to discharge them deeply and leave them stand "dead" for an extended period of time. When they discharge, there is a chemical change in the positive plates of the battery. They change from lead oxide when charged to lead sulfate when discharged. If they remain in the lead sulfate state for a few days, some part of the plate does not return to lead oxide when the battery is recharged. If the battery remains discharged longer, a greater amount of the positive plate will remain lead sulfate. The parts of the plates that become "sulfated" no longer store energy. Batteries that are deeply discharged, and then charged partially on a regular basis can fail in less than one year.

THIS WAS A BUST. I purchased this to replace the original battery that came with my daughter's Barbie Jeep. The original battery lasted about 3 years and worked very well before running out of juice. I read several reviews that concerned me saying that the replacement battery went dead very very quickly. Well, that's exactly what happened to me . . . I read and followed the instructions closely, in terms of how long to charge initially, and then subsequent charging as well. We got about 3 charges out of it, and that's it. I ended up throwing away the Jeep, and I'm taking this battery and the original battery to the dump, where they have a station to recycle old batteries. Amazon cannot take this product back . . since it is a hazardous material (acid), but, kudos to them, they credited me the purchase right away. I don't know what to tell you on this one . . . it could be the batteries they have are old shelf batteries; it could be something wrong with our Jeep itself. . . BUT . . . if it can happen to me (and others that I read about), then it can happen to you. We're going to purchase an upgraded vehicle from here and not fool around with replacement batteries anymore. GOod luck.

This is a great price for this replacement battery. We left our jeep in a freezing cold shed all winter because we didn't read the directions. The battery needs to be stored in a warm place when not in use...oops!

I bought this new battery for our Fisher Price F-150 ride on truck after 3 seasons. The truck wouldnt go for longer than 10 minutes despite being "fully charged". Got a new battery, and charged it per instructions. It still would run out of steam after 10-15 minutes. After reading some of these reviews and talking to an electrics guy, I bought a new 12 Volt charger off of good old amazon as well. It works like a dream now. The truck runs like new. It was the charger that was bad, not the NEW battery. Try a new charger before blaming the battery. It fixed our issues!

There is nothing like a new battery :o) Last summer we bought a power wheels at a garage sale and let the kids drive it on the original battery. It never lasted long. Now it is the vehicle that my three kids fight for...of the 2 power wheels we own, it has the most power and lasts the longest. We like the product and had never had a problem with it - as long as you follow the instructions for charging (i.e. always fully charge the battery for 18 hours before its first use, make sure it gets fully charged after every other use, etc.) We were able to get the best price for this from Amazon...good deal!

Got the battery in a couple of weeks ago. Works great! Just remember not to let the charger remain on it for more than 24 hours.

I found a couple power wheel toys at a few garage sales, but unfortunately they were missing the batteries. What do you want for $20? So I purchased this battery and keep them charged with the NOCO G3500 NOCO Genius Gray 6V and 12V 3500mA (3.5A) Fully Automatic Battery Charger and Maintainer NOCO G3500 charger and have never had an issue, combined with the charger I now have had these batteries for almost 24 months now and can have them charged and back on the road within 90 minutes.

Needed a second battery for my daughters powerwheel. This battery is identical to the one that came with the powerwheel I purchased. Shipped fast and in its original bubble wrapped package. The company sends a letter that tells you they receive these in bundles and before they ship them they test them. I would reccomend to order powerwheels parts from this company!

I've read many bad reviews... but now that I've received the battery I wonder how many of these reviewers followed the directions? First things first, charge for 18 HOURS. Then essentially make sure it lives on the charger when not in use. NEVER drain battery.

I just got this from Santa's workshop in the Amazon to replace my son's dead jeep battery. I will do an update in a month and again in a year. But first things first - read the entire directions booklet!!

NOT a good purchase.

I should have read the reviews first. This battery lasted exactly one charge for me when the original lasted well over 4 years. I have not overcharged the battery and I have followed the manual instructions. Now I wasted $50 since Amazon will not take it back (hazardous material).
