Thread: decent battery makes

  1. #1

    decent battery makes

    Need to get a new battery for my freelander as the current one has died (after 8 years) and I had to get the RAC out today to jump start it which was a tad embarrassing

    What is a decent make of battery to get as I dont want to get cheap crap that will die over the winter.

    Why not get the same as you already hav
    if it's lasted 8 years with no probs till now
    why even bother looking around as most decent batteries only seem to last 3 years

    Its a landrover one so I know before even phoning for a price it will be at least twice as much as the nearest rival!

    Bosch do good batteries.

    Tbh battery technology has come on leaps and bounds, most batteries will last a fair length of time.

    There are more dodgy alternators and connections than bad batteries.
    There is a place on this planet for all of God's creatures, right next to my tatties and gravy!!!

    Went for a bosch silver battery.
    85 next day delivered which seems alright and is 25 cheaper than halfords!
    Came with 5 year guarantee as well.

    I recently went for an "Optima Red Top".
    They are expensive at around 145 but are acknowledged as on of the best.
    PS There is a second hand one on Ebay currently at 100, may be worth a look.

    You have answered your own question. You get what you pay for.
