    The dates are normally the date that it was purchased. It's for warranty purposes.

    Yip, certainly looks like that's what they've done.

    Last two times I purchased a battery they engraved the date in front of me. (Midas & Autozone)

    Also when ever possible when my vehicle gets serviced, I take a permanent marker and write the dates on the stuff and the OD reading.

    Like @unstoppableErasor said, they normally engrave it in front of you. Who was the retailer?

    The fight will be on as the batteries did stop working and went down to 6 Volts.... These are Gel 100Ah batteries, I have bought a 200Ah battery now to replace these, I will see what this company has to say about this...I am ready for WAR....

    These engravings are only really in place should the invoice be lost.

    So if you have the invoice no problem.
