    Here's a picture taken some time in 2018 for a GLS CVT model at the dealership. Motolite 55D23L is built exclusively for Mitsubishi Phils.

    It is my opinion that there is no such thing as "tropicalized" battery. The term is just marketing hype.

    The new battery is in and it works as it should be. The wheel gap on that side also increased by a quarter inch, obviously due to the lighter battery. Might be placebo but I also noticed a difference in the car's balance after the weight loss.

    PS: I wrapped the battery in insulation foam to make sure it won't suffer from.heat soak.

    It was on half-price discount, so I bought 2 as the MY13 Outlander also uses the same battery, lucky.
