Here you go
have to say I'm a fan of these batteries, we bought a car new in 2008 much to my horror the OEM battery failed within just 4 years, swapped it out with a bosch and still starts better than it did from new! never known a car battery to fail when its driven 40+ mile everyday, guess that's Italian batteries for you

if anyone is on the look out, eurocar parts seem to do Duracell ones cheaper than most cheap batteries and they also have a 5 year warranty, never used one but I can't imagine them being bad
I replaced my battery last september i think and went for the Varta Silver Battery F18 its the biggest battery that would fit my diesel vectra and has a 5 year warranty.Also made in the factory as bosch.

I interpret that saying differently. The early worm gets eaten by the bird.

Yes it's part of the same company, but an online only subsidy.
Decent price - have some heat. Have to question the car-sense of whoever writes their marketing 'blurb' "you do not need to top up OR CHANGE THE WATER" ! It's a long time since I topped up a car battery, but I have never 'changed the water' in one - by 'water', I'm assuming they mean sulphuric acid!

Also a comment on the life of OEM batteries Passed on my wife's 9 year old Focus, still on its original battery; sold my 7 year old Mondeo diesel - again on its original battery (and original exhaust systems still on both cars too). However, the original battery failed on my son's Fiat at 4 years, and the battery in a friend's 2010 Saab 9-5 failed at 3.

Can also suggest Tayna as a good place to buy batteries online.

The second mouse gets the cheese
Had one of these fail with five months to run on the four year warranty. Thankfully I'd retained the receipt (and noted the date by labelling the battery as I installed it), and once they'd tested it themselves and verified it as a failure, the merchant (Sutton Auto Factors) promptly swapped it. So glad I'd not saved a few pennies by choosing one with only three years cover!

Surely the early worm is the first to get back underground before dawn? The tardy worm is still on the surface when its predator arrives.

No it means distilled water/ de-ionised water, some batteries need topping up when it becomes low, the reaction when charging turns some of the water back into oxygen and hydrogen so you cells would run dry on water.

Of course in our throw away society sealed units are now the norm.

Good price for the Bosch S4
Can't confirm if it matches my car on the website, but I think this is the same battery I paid over double this price for last year (RAC wanted over £100 I think), so absolute bargain on first sight.

Update. Finally managed to put my car details in and as the cold cranking amp is half the CCA on my £90 Bosch battery, not quite the bargain I first thought.

This is for the xhara Citroen
Vw is 70£
My bm battery went after 3 yrs ...usual life apparently£100 plus
An old golf has a battery over 12 years
My Tr6 used 1 a year
A bit of chance here
just got mine thanks great price
My car currently has a battery that says 50Ah - 410
This one has 45Ah - 420.
As I understand, the cranking power is best if it is higher (420>410), but can someone please help me understand what the first figure means and how bad would it be if I had 5Ah less?

TIA
Believe it or not but Bosch don't actually make car batteries, neither does Duracell or Varta. Most batteries in the world are made by Johnson Controls, Exide, or GS Yuasa then rebranded. You can potentially get a cheapo generic eBay or car parts supplier battery that's the same as this for even less money.

Ah = Amp hours. A 50Ah battery could supply one amp for fifty hours (or theoretically 500 amps for six minutes). The Ah tells you how much energy the battery contains, and the CCA tells you how quickly you can get that energy out.

At 400A, 5Ah would last you 5/400 hours = 300/400 minutes = ¾ of a minute = 45 seconds. It's a few more starts (though if your battery is down to its very last 5Ah it might not be starting anyway).

That's handy to know! What do you mean by trade centre though? A dealership with a parts centre?
Ordered, cheers!
Would this be suitable for a 1.8 zetec turbo?
Brilliant deal, many thanks.
Might be worth mentioning, Costco is pretty handy for batteries... they sell Bosch ones are the prices are very good.

Either you are just wrong or you didn't read the comment properly.I would think there are very few vehicle owners that don't know what topping up a battery means, even though it is years since any new vehicle had anything other than a sealed battery that doesn't need topping up. So your explanation of that was wasted. As for changing the water, probably referring to changing sulphuric acid, in that he was right and you were wrong. That is exactly how the life of older batteries can be extended. Before sealed types became the norm, it was common practice to empty out the old (weak) acid, wash out the battery with water, and then fill with the correct specific gravidy acid, bought from any battery shop, and , oh yes, checked with hydrometer(fsold by Halfords).

Thank you for that. So, just to clarify, the 5Ah drop from the old battery to the new would only mean that under a 400A load, I would get 45 seconds less operating time? Did I get that right?

How will my onboard devices (dashcam, stereo, car's electrics, phone charger) be affected?
Please pardon my ignorance...

Wow, I should have checked before I replaced mine last year.

I can vouch for the Toyota one because although I was cursing mine for dying, when I opened the bonnet I realised it was the very battery that was installed at the factory 11 years earlier.

Do you know if topping up the de-ionised water in a battery would increase the CCA of the battery? My car battery seems to be on the verge of not being able to crank the engine up, especially on slightly colder days and was wondering whether replacing the water would help. Having said that, my car is 12 years old and is still running on original batteries. It's only recently I've noticed a slight struggle in the startups. When the car is running, my instrument panel shows the voltage as 14.2V so that looks healthy.

Thanks.
Ye a Toyota First Trade Centre. Not sure if the price is nationwide but all Arnold Clark Toyota trade sites have 063's at £22.50, 075's at £34.99 and 100's at £39.99. Bought loads of them for customers. Price is + vat
Good price, but normal price for my car. I've bought 2 Bosh batteries for my car and my wife's car for about £60 each. There's sale at gsfcarparts.com with 40% code if anyone needs it. It's for this weekend only - FEB40

60AH BOSCH S4 BATTERY UK REF 005 for Subaru Legacy - £67.20 after code.

They inflate prices before weekend if you use code, but still good price.

Hope it helps someone

12 years is a good innings I'd just replace it before it lets you down in the middle of nowhere late at night when it's raining and there's no mobile signal.
