Found 26th Nov 2012
Needed a big battery in time for winter, there is a 20% of GSF or discounts at Eurocarparts but these Ebay chaps seem the cheapest especially with a 4 year warranty. Its a shop for tayna.co.uk/ a large UK battery distributor.

The price £62.50 is knocked down 5% if you call direct mention ebay on 01745 823399 as its more expensive on their website. Also don't take old battery to council dump most metal recyclers will give £3 to £5 for a dud car battery.

I'm now kinda interested in any similar big AH batteries for a solar project.... please let me know whats better...

You did check the battery was suitable for your car?

Yea - it is about a third longer... to be honest it has an electrical problem that seems to drain battery after 4 days of no use so just hoping to get a weeks use - i know i should try and fix the problem but it looks complex more than just the glovebox light !

Complex in what way?

oooo not only do i need a battery but that's my local code.....bonus!!!!

My Wife reckons her rabbit has an electrical fault too, as the batts are always going flat.
This might fix her issue, if it only it would fit.

I've been advised to put a digital multimeter on and gradually remove fuses until voltage drops, it's something like the ECU or radio staying on, I know its seems wrong but at this point a bigger battery seemed the simplist 'fix' !

If you remove a fuse and the voltage increases you are more liely to have found the source!

I had the same problem, it turned out to be the light in the boot was staying on constantly (take the boot light bulb out and see if it helps)..............

Hi - yes I too think this would be something very useful for a solar project Im intersted in. Anybody have any better ideas than this item for a large & relatively inexpensive battery?

Cheers folks - hope I can do something to beat these crazy ever increasing energy costs that we're all held to ransom with!!

Not bad - shame its not a 110ah, also, does anyone know what type it is ?

quickest fix is disconnect battery at night or if possible whilst your at work. At least then it should be lasting a little longer.

Just curious but have you checked the alternator belt? could be its not charging the battery as opposed to something draining the battery. OK after reading fault thats not going to make any difference after 4 days of no use LOL

You really want a different kind of battery for this use, one optimised for a service cycle rather than a high amp short burst for starting.

Hi LP - any links or suggestions on a longer service cycle battery, or can you point us to a use source of info buddy?
I understand the concept - longer useage time rather than shorter high drain application yes?

They seem to be listed under "leisure battery" or "deep cycle battery" on eBay.

Thanks, Im on it

Iv'e got a 2 litre CMax Diesel ghia, it;s fully loaded, even the handbrake is electric.

I don't do much mileage (50 miles a week) so battery goes dead every 10 days, so what I do every Sunday is put it on a drip charge (terminals connected) while I cook my mums diner for her.

it works for me that way

It takes you over 12 hrs to cook your mum dinner ? oO

Where ever did you get 12 hours from?

If your'e implying I spend all of Sunday cooking diner, then your'e more stupid than what I first thought.

PS: There is 24 hours in a day but so you ask, about 2 hours is sufficient.

Charging a flat / dead battery using a trickle charger takes you 2 hrs ? Which make / model do you have ?? I have a Ctek 3.6S and that takes a minimum of 12 hrs ( for a 12v 680cca 74ah battery )

I realised you may have been cooking your mum slow pulled pork or similar...then I re-read what you wrote and again above and see that you're not cooking 1 dinner but possibly more as you're in a diner.

Guess I'm not so stupid after all.

PS: Really ? A whole 24 hrs in a day ?? No. Never. You don't say. I always assumed it was 12. (The other 12 being 'night')

Hmmm, wonder if two of these will be good enough to start my 75E15 (6lt TD).

Aslong as the amps are high enough then you'd be good but I'd find it unlikely. Alot of big diesel engines, older ones, used a 24v system. You can of course link them to get higher amp output. There is a formula somewhere to say what it would be but that's not my department.

Rather than aquiescent resignation to increased energy prices, as an alternative why not try a long forgotten method - that of resistant protest.

I shall, as ever, be using this method copiously - be in control of this one and only life, rather than an obedient slave.

Mine is 24v - thus two batteries, rather than two batteries for higher CCA. On that, it's the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) that is important for starting.
And yes, actually, even in series a quick google suggests these might be ok at 870. It's designed to take two batteries wired up in serial.

Must be only if you call since cannot find on their web site.

Careful of leisure batteries and deep-cycle batteries when used with a car. These are a slightly different design from car batteries; the peak power they will supply is lower, and may be insufficient to operate a starter.

Why would anyone spend 60 quid on the WRONG battery for their car? Bargain price for the correct one would be good but this approach seems guaranteed to end in failure.

2 hours for a trickle charge is not anyway enough to recharge a battery hence why it keeps going flat as it is never fully recharged. A trickle charge would normally be at least 12-18 hours, if not more.

If your battery is draining in 10 days regardless of how any miles you do a week, that would suggest your current battery. Is knacked or you have a drain.

Thx very much OP - just in time our Merc battery died a couple of days ago.

I called and mentioned the 5% off discount over the phone - the price she quoted me on the phone was close to £68. At first the lady didn't seem to know whether she could do it and then checked an agreed. The 5% off the £62.50 Ebay price brings it down to £59.38.

Next day delivery included as ordered before 4pm.

Cheers

What merc you got? Mercs are a little touchy when it comes to voltages, -1v and some wont even start.

Let us know how this battery went with your merc? i need to get one for mine.
