Since its another amaron manufactured/ qc controlled, i hope the same or better quality is there. Yet to see any hotline/service numbers on their site but considering brand presence in lot of products i expect them to be contactable.

Called the Amaron toll free number today, and was attended to immediately. Hope the service works without such unexplained breaks...

Hi,
My stock Amaron battery in my swift is given on me after a service of close to 3 years after heavy abuse. I am planning to go with Amaron but with higher amperage. I am not sure if I need to change the terminals which connect the battery and the fuse box. Please let me if I need to change those as well. The battery terminals (Amaron Pro) were little thicker than the one I have now. I will check with it tomorrow as I need to do it immediately.

Please advice. Thanks in advance.
/Raju

Something to remember. Kind of un-said, but lot of us can miss the not-so-fine fine print about the exchange limitation.

@Raju, you can go up by abou 5 AH, and not more. If the rating of the battery is too high, then your alternator will not be able to charge the battery. Any drastic increase in AH rating of the battery will need an upgrade of the alternator also. Pls stay as close as possible to your stock battery rating : it is sufficient to run your car & standard accessories, including an amp & sub set-up.

You need not change the terminals but will have to buy new ones for the larger post of new battery. The stock connection can be clamped together and then connected to new terminal using nut and bolts. No cutting will be required .
Retaining this way later on if you go for the stock size it can be refixed back as original.

If any warranty issues are there it will also be taken care of.
You know the service guys, they can put any logic tomorrow to breakup the warranty claim if any.

I just went and checked with the Alternator of my swift and found the following part no which indicate that my swift's alternators is rated at 12Volts/70Amp (Guess) .

Maruti Part No. 31400-75JX0
Lucas TVS Part No. 260 21 385 (Model A121, 70A) .

So I expect that I can safely go for 60Ah Amaron Pro or Hi-Life or FLO range of batteries. I am planning to go for a battery which is stock in Swift diesel.

The above batteries are reliable and do have a long time and all to get maximum out of the battery get the electricals checked up once in 3 months.

Cheers

Two queries:

1. Has anyone recently purchased an AMARON PRO battery? If yes, How much did it cost after exchange? If in Mumbai - from where?

2. My battery is 4 year old and due for replacement. I have a slight problem with warm startups and setting out on a Mumbai-Udaipur trip. My query is that if the car run on long drive with only the music system on and AC on need basis, the battery should be well charged after traveling 500 plus kms right? That should be able to charge the headlights etc. Presently also the music system, headlight function fine. Just the startup niggle thats bothering me.

Thanks.

Got Amaron FLO 42B20R - 48 months warranty . MRP 3930 Rs .This is 35 AH .
I exchanged it with a working battery(base terminal) + some discount for 3280 Rs .
The dealer said the old battery would work if I recharge it , but It was already 45 months old and dint want to take a chance .

Now ,the bike , the car and the inverter, all have amarons .

Base Terminal comes with 50 months "warranty" dude... you sold it within the warranty period! I'd definitely have stuck with it, if the parameters still looked good... no way I'd discard good working battery like that. They don't usually just give up the ghost abruptly.

I bought the same battery for my Esteem ten days ago. Paid 3.5K for it. The old battery was an AC Delco which was on its last legs after working hard for 50 months now.

Yes I know ,but as I said I dint want to take a chance and it might die again anytime /anywhere.At least now I got around 500 Rs for the battery ,after another 5 months (that is warranty period over ) ,I would have got ZERO Rs . .Also I have a peace of mind that a new battery is there and I dont have to bother for next 3- 4 years .

Well dude, very new batteries can and do die abruptly too! Have personally experienced this.

You would get some buyback value for any battery in whatever condition. Condition of the battery is not important - its the lead that is recycled. So whether your battery is stone dead or still has some juice makes not difference at all in the buy back value... unless the battery still is "usable" and the dealer intends to sell it as a 2nd hand battery. But I guess most dealers don't do this.
