- Car battery – why not go for the cheapest?
The cheap ones are likely to be slightly worse manufacturing-wise than the expensive ones. To be honest, my local motor factors used to sell the battery for my car for 30 for the el-cheapo, and 40 for the bosch super all singing silver exide whatsit with a 3 year guarantee. It’s lasted 7 so far with no problems, even having been drained completely flat 4 times for weeks on end.Posted 6 years agotronMember
There’s a firm in the West Midlands that sell batteries online. If you look on Google Shopping they’ll be one of the cheaper ones. I got a 4 year warranty Ka battery for 40 quid, came next day.
Can’t see why I wouldn’t buy the cheapest at that, nobodies giving out more than 4 year warranties, and it’s not underspecced. Check the CCA figure and Ah are as good as the standard battery.Posted 6 years agowiseprankerMember
Check with your mates and see if any of them have got a Halfords Trade Club card. If they have, use that to buy the battery then an expensive battery becomes a cheap battery and you still get your 5 year warranty.Posted 6 years ago
If you’re in West London, let me know and you can use my card.
