Amaron Ding dong.
Get a higher spec battery.
For example if your car has 55Ah, get a 65Ah one high capacity.
This will help longer ICE periods.
The 2 year + 2 year warranty is a bonus.

AFAIK, Optima is longer available, except for old stock.

I would never recommend buying an exide.

I can recommend to you the following batteries, go for any.

Amaron (ding dong)
Bosch Silver
Panasonic Varta
Leader
Prestolite

I can assure you, most of the other batteries are crap.

Default Battery For Non-automotive Application In Ncr?

Ok guys,

i have a very uselfull 2,50,000 candle power search light, i bought from germany, it was doing good service but battery went dead after 3-years of regular use.

yesterday i opened the thing, took the battery out, the spec says, 12v 2.6Ah/20HR it is about the size of a bike battery (a little smaller) & lead acid type.

I searched enitre west delhi dealers no one stocks it, can somebody guide me where to look for, any good brand will do, original battery sports a name "JOHNLITE", i am not sure what brand johnlite is.

here is the product link: space search eye rechargeable spotlight

Are you sure you didn't get a fake? Because the original is Ding Dong.

Amaron Pro 75Min/400A would be the best battery if you have heavy Ice setup in the car. (Amp's/Sub)

0-24 Months- Free replacement, 25- 48 Months - Pro -rated Compensation.

I have used two of these battery in my esteem and Baleno no problems till date.

Cheers

Actually we have had a some issues with Amaron Pro batteries. Have had better results with Bosch Silver. Optima is a gamble, either it will work or it wont. You don't want to spend that kind of money on a battery and end up with a lemon.

I like Bosch (dont ask me why) but I am sure there are many others. I would like to try ding dong only becuase we love their adverts.

hi,

thanks sam, gunman and everyone here for the suggestions. my stock battery was din 60. exide freedom(freedom from self start, olny dhakka start) i tried the bosch silver but there are no dealers here for their battery division. i bought amaron pro same rating. ding dong(the original). there is a tremendous improvment in the strating. the starter motor is much quicker now. it cost me 5100/- dead battery was taken back for 700 = 4400/- i hope it lasts long, really long.

also how do you check if its the same rating? the amaron has a sticker witha long code(560 smthing) and cca rating-600(cold crank)

bolo tararara.

Go to Nehru place with the battery. Search for sealed Lead acid UPS batteries which are 12V and have similar size.
