OP s pic is a Type 063 which is a tiny battery. I would hazard a guess that you drive a lawn mower if this is your battery?

I would still try it with your own battery and share how you found the price.
In my experience, I have purchased the lion brand of battery once before for a 2.0l petrol ford focus and it's been a champion!. They are supposed to be cheap and cheerful but it's doing a great job 11/12 years later!

I've use lion battery in transit been there 4 yes, still going strong!
I had two of these for my Discovery TD5, they lasted weeks. Replaced with a Bosch and never had a problem. Personally I wouldn't buy another of that brand as they are probably cheap for a reason.
Lion batteries are plain rubbish, like most products that ECP sell.
Not to be confused with Li-ion batteries, of course!

Bought a car with a 12 month yr old Lion battery. I drove it for 3 more months and it had had it. Replaced with a Duracell and its going strong 5 years later. Personally I would not touch a Lion, you get what you pay for.
Is this actually from carparts4less as the seller is carpartsbargains, are they the same company?

Yes a sister company of euro car parts as well
With the plentiful code it is showing £24 for me.
The Lion battery that I had failed after about 6 months on the car. The car hadn't been used for 2 weeks and the battery wouldn't take recharging. Worth paying extra for a Bosch or Excel from ECP.
My only experience of these batteries going bad are when they have been sat in a car for a while, however they are pretty easy to return and have the 3 year warranty.

O63 battery is on of the most commonly used batteries in the UK, lion a re a reasonably sound brand. Not had any problems with them. Good post cheers
The numbers denote the size, ie. mine is a type 096. The next thing to check is the cranking amp hours, the higher the figure the better.
From my limited experience I would say they're of variable quality. I bought one, would go dead if car left for a week. Took it back, got another, fitted at shop, twas dead. Got another it's ok'ish. But will die after being left for a time. Can't be bothered anymore but I won't be buying another. It was cheap, but maybe for a reason.

"would go dead if car left for a week. "

To be fair to all batteries, it depends on the make of Car and the battery drain when not used. I know someone with an Aston Martin that spends most of its life in a garage with a flat battery. In fact it is such a common fault with Aston Martins that they have introduced a mod, to have 2 batteries in your car due to the electrical drain when not in use.

Agreed that's how lead acid battery chemistry works.

I've got a Mercedes branded battery and also another Bosch battery in my mercedes (some cars have two big batteries - one for the electrics and another for the starter motor), both go dead if the car isn't driven for a while. And they were both new and purchased by myself just 2 years ago!.

Your telling me, I needed a new Stop/Start Battery recently and it was a really pain, trying to work out exactly what was needed, apparently these type even have to be coded into the vehicle electronics to prevent errors and malfunctions. Got the garage to fit one in the end.

Previous battery I had did not die if left for weeks, same car. When I took it back the guy behind the counter obviously had a lot of returns. I've now had three in a short space of time, two dud one just about usable, if I could be bothered anymore I would have taken it back.

Too True, that's why all the family drive Ferrari's
Any good for hybrid cars

40Ah. 063 is the standard battery for a 1.2 Ford Fiesta. Not quite a lawn mower, and actually a pretty good example of a standard UK car for the OP to use.

£24.96 is the cheapest I've seen a battery for my car.....almost making me consider getting a spare.....paying RAC £100 after they stick a voltmeter across one and tell you it's dead when it only needs recharging is for chumps, but they do die and suddenly.

Since they are likely to have stop start I would suggest sticking to manufacturers recommendations especially since they are fussier than regular cars since they also power the motors .
Bought a new one in Feb had to call breakdown out 3 times on seperate occasions. But said never buy eurocarparts own brand lion batteries they don't hold charge. He knew its lion before he opened bonnet!
Edited by: "Zameen" 24th Sep
I have one in my car. Car sat for 2 years and battery was completely dead. Full charge and no problems so far.
Was sure a new battery would be needed when I bought the car.
I bought this for my car from same site and mechanic fitted. Mechanic thought I should buy a more expensive battery. I have done 300 miles in last fifteen months and not had any problems starting.
I use lion batteries in my classic cars. Not driven often but never had problems with starting the engine after several weeks.
Anyone had a delivery yet? I've just unpacked the battery and some of the surrounding yellow fabric is soaking wet!

I saved some of the liquid in a jar...squeezed (bought rubber gloves) from the yellow fabric and bag, that the battery came in.

300 miles in over a year?

Must be cheaper to take a taxi surely (tax, insurance, MOT etc).
063 standard battery for a lot of Astras too
