Your Battery Source near Costa Mesa located in Santa Ana

Your world is powered by batteries. While not everything requires a battery to function, many of the items you rely on each day certainly do. From your phone to your car to your toothbrush, chances are you use something that is battery powered from the time you wake up each morning until it is time to go to bed. If you are in Costa Mesa, turn to Powertron for all your battery needs. We have been helping Costa Mesa residents and businesses with their battery needs for over six decades. We carry all types of batteries and even manufacture many of them ourselves. If you want the best batteries at the best prices, head to Powertron.

Dedicated to Offering Costa Mesa the Very Best

It wasn’t long ago that specialty stores were found in every neighborhood, on practically every corner. Rather than buying from big box stores, you went to your neighbor who knew everything there was to know about the products they sold. Now, those mom-and-pop stores are closing up shop. But not Powertron.

Despite the competition from those big box stores, we’re still thriving. We believe this is due to a few key factors. First, we are dedicated to our customers. As a family-owned business, every sale matters to us. We are not just retail workers looking to bring in some money; our business is central to our family and part of our legacy.

Second, we focus on quality. We take great pride in the products we sell, in particular those we manufacture. We do not carry any products that we would not use ourselves.

Third, we offer a wide selection of batteries. Box stores may have your basic home batteries, but what about what you need to power an electric wheelchair? Or a jet ski? We carry these batteries in store, so you don’t need to go searching for them.

Finally, there are our prices. Our products are the very best, but we don’t charge top-of-the-line prices for them. When you come to Powertron, you get a bargain.

Powertron is located in Santa Ana, which is a quick drive from Costa Mesa. For the service you deserve, the quality you want, and the selection that you need, all for prices that cannot be beat, come to Powertron.

Our History

Bill Leonhardt founded Powertron in 1962. Originally, his goal was just to manufacture batteries, but then he realized there was a need for a comprehensive retail shop in Southern California. Over the years, we have grown and changed, but much has remained unchanged. Bill is still at the helm, and Powertron is still a family effort. When you come into the shop, chances are he will be there, ready to talk to you about our products and services.
