Hi Pete ..

if you have not thought of before.. when comparing manufacturers batteries (the same type and ah capacity) ... it's useful to look at the weight.. the heavier they are the more lead they have.. the more lead the thicker the plates so better quality..

weight should be in the specs..

I bought my Exide gels from Tanya .. good prices and fast delivery

would recommend buying a reputable brand.. https://www.tayna.co.uk/Leisure-Batteries-C45.html

Thanks Jim, deerfordog mentioned that as well, something that I hadn't thought about before and will take into consideration.

My budget doesn't stretch to Gels.

Quick update,


Eventually went with Tayna again and got a pair of 115ah Endurolines for Ģ230 delivered next day.


Fitted a few days ago and working fine. We'll be off soon for a few days off hook up, so they will get a good test out then.

Our Timberland Ducatto X250 panel van came fitted with a pair of 110AH Platinum low Height LB110L batteries under the front seats. They lasted 6 1/2 years. The criteria for fail is 'will they allow the diesel heater to start on a cold morning on day 3 without hookup'. It takes over 10amps and needs the voltage to stay up. We do have an 80W solar panel on the roof. Over 6 years seemed good so I replaced them with the current equivalent which seems to be LB6110L for Ģ189.98 the pair delivered. I just had not bargained for taking the seats apart and out to do it so, if you are not as young as I used to be, you need to add the cost of a weeks Ibuprofen!
