My vote is also for Amaron.
I had exide as stock battery and it died in 10 months. So got the amaron and it has been running fine from last 2.5 years without any problem.

Candle power is a measure of luminous intensity

Strange i think I made this post but forgot to post it, lol

Anyways, Bosch has no Battery manufacture unit in India. All Bosch Silver Batteries are made by Amara Raja Batteries (Amaron). Of course they are built to Bosch Specs, drawings and tolerances, but are built by amaron.

Just some interesting inside info I thought I'd share with you.

I'm not surprised. My Lancer OEM Exide had a 12 month warranty. It was busted in the 13th month. Talk about building things to last, lol.

I think they have a inbuilt timer which activates when it comes close to 1 year of usage....

My OEM battery was Exide Freedom. It lasted 6.5 years, from Nov 2000 till last month. Have replaced it with Exide Supersonic (basically from the Japanese company Standard Furukawa and comes with 48-month guarantee). But I don't have any ICE in my Santro, main load is probably the air compressor that I run once in two weeks to top up tyre pressures.

The OEM battery in my Indica was an Exide. It lasted until June 2006 and would have lasted longer had I not had alternator trouble resulting in battery overcharging.

it is your luck that your battery survived for so any years. i had a generator which had a local made battery(my friend manufactures them) it lasted for 12 years. dont know how. give the generator was an old diese workhorse which had alternator trouble throughout its life im really surprised. now ive got the engine of the gen to leyland lol.

cheers

Hmm... interesting because Amara Raja manufactures batteries under tech license from Johnson Controls USA, who manufacture the unreliable Optima batteries.

BTW, my Amaron Pro died on me in the second month of ownership. And a couple of ICE customers are also not too happy with the results of Amaron Pro.

Bosch Silver / Amaron Pro's.

Panasonics are also nice along with Varta and Magneti Marelli

Funny the same thing happened to my wife's car (the OEM was a Exide and it died when the car was 13 months old). Fortunately it was a Sunday and I was around.
