I used GLOBAL NS40ZL for 5 years without any problem. i sold the car after 5 years i don't know what happen to that battery after that. i will not recommend GLOBAL Maintenance free battery. i think YUASA is a good brand but never used. i have been using EXIDE since 2008 also the model called PRESIDENT i have been using since year 2006 so far so good both.

Used FB NS80 battery (Original Japanese) for 5 years. this is for a Van. couldn't found the same battery on the local market but settled for EXIDE NS80 lasted more than 3 years without a problem. now using GS NS40 for the car so far no problem (It has been 2 years now). got it for 5000/- + 1 Year warranty.

I think better to go with "Exide battery". Last month I have replaced my Mazda's battery. Its Exide NS40. cost around 6300/= with 1 year warranty. Battery prices are moving too fast (increase).

I have checked battery prices with some dealers. Most of them said, go with Exide.

This is only my idea. Before buy that, you better to check the prices. :)

another option is buying from those third party importers/sellers...last week i bought half dozen batterys for the trucks at 2500Rs a pop from a guy at wennapuwa,all new...the guys stock had arrived the day before and i went the following day and it was nearly all gone...there are a couple of other places at allawwa and kandy i heard...no guarantees ofcourse,so it aint for the faint hearted or whiners :rolleyes:

how about amaron batteries, AFIK they are better than exide

BTW if you interested about longer life time, go for a non sealed ( normal type) battery. Because if u maintain it properly, it will last longer than a maintenance free battery.

once a week. my home car.

Yeah. That should be possible mate. B'cos one of my friend using a Alto. He bought the car in mid of 2003. Now Almost 5 1/2 years. Still didnt change the battery. He is also using once a week / twice a week.

But if we are using the machine daily, the battery will expire soon (max 2 years). Had some experience. :)

The company who is selling Soltron now promoting additive and they say it will increase the battery life up to 8 years. I added it two months before. According to my previous experience with my diesel vehicle battery lasts only 2 years and milestone is this November. So I will tell you the results in January.

They sell 6 pills (one pill per cell) @ Rs 1500/=

From where did you buy the battery? 5k for Exide seems cheap

Guys,

If you buy anything from the parent company they will not give you any discount. But if you buy from any sub agent they will give you a discount.
