$50 Walmart battery that fits

I searched and didn't find anything so I hope this information helps someone else. The OEM battery in my wife's 2015 Versa Note 5-speed decided it didn't want to start the car anymore today. Being budget-minded, as I'm sure many Versa owners are, I was hoping to find a replacement in Walmart's $50 line of batteries but the typical T4/5 or Group 90 batteries listed as replacements were over $100. So my frugal ass brought in the old battery and got a tape measure and matched things up and figured out that a Group 26R battery will fit, and is available for $50. It has exactly the same dimensions as OEM, except it's slightly taller but there is plenty of extra room for it to fit and the cables are just long enough to still reach. It has the lip on the bottom and the OEM hold-down clamp fits. The insulating wrap slides on too. New battery is 540 CCA vs the OEM 470. Can't really go wrong there.

Great find. Nothing wrong to get a different battery as long as the CCA is the same or higher.
