Need Help Finding Battery Water Filler

Been looking for a Battery Water Filler, looks like a turkey baster. Been to auto parts stores, Walmart, Camping World, etc. etc. All I can find is the "Automatic Water Filler" that Camping World sells and I have used with marginal success. Has anyone out there have any idea where I can get one?

I also could not find one at any local stores and ended up buying this one on Amazon.

I use a measuring cup and dedicated funnel. Keeping it simple works for me.

I use a basic plastic turkey-baster type thing with a rubber bulb. Works fine. There's no mystery here.

I have used a plastic house plant watering can with a long curving spout.

I use a small irrigation syringe(syringe sans needle) I got at a tractor/ranch supply store. I usually have to add very little water that a full syringe is enough for the whole battery.

Yep. Also sold at O'Reilly Auto Parts stores.
The only down side is it's hard to use with a gallon of distilled water. But it can be done.
