Hi friends,
its been about 30 months since by above post, and current ODO is ~152K KMs!

Since last few days, I noticed that cranking time has bit increased. My vehicle is almost daily used, and the running is quite high.
Yday went to the Amaron shop (from where I purchased earlier) and asked him to check battery:
- first he checked with volt meter connected to terminal and started car & AC + lights : voltage was bit low; specific gravity of water seemed OK;
- then he entirely dismantled the battery and connected to another meter in his shop : said "1 or 2 cells" has become weak, and water level is just perfect;

So, as per him the battery is weak and needs to be changed, but I conveyed of prolonging the purchase atleast for 1-2 months. As per his calculations, the net price (after returning old) is similar to by way of deducting the 'pro-rate' warranty. He also suggested to upgrade from 65 Ah to 75 Ah - but I have a doubt about alternator load.

another thing I noticed :
3 days back, the vehicle DDAS console just got reset, and my HU's config were also reset. I had to setup the date/time etc settings.

Just few minutes back, I drove nearby for some work, and saw that DDAS was again reset. There was no issue starting the vehicle, a bit long cracking.


Any suggestions / inputs on above matter is welcome.

regards,

Latest Updates:
You may refer a bit background on this post : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/mumbai...ml#post3961963 (Free Jump starts & Battery help - Exide Batmobile, Mumbai (and other cities))

Exide Mileage MI700 was quoted at Rs.5400 net (i.e. after giving old battery).

Today purchased Amaron Go (65Ah) for Rs.4100 net.
Previous purchase of same model was Rs.4900 as reported in my earlier post, maybe this time the discount calculations was higher, battery being in the pro-rata Warranty period (+18 months).

regards,

Dear team,

My 8 months old Amaron Flo battery conked off yesterday. Surprisingly it showed no signs of weakness before giving up the ghost.

I have documented the entire ordeal here- Click to open (The love of my life: A 2000 Maruti 800 DX 5-Speed)

I have lodged a complaint on their toll free number. Cam anyone let me know what is the procedure of warranty replacement, and how will I be given a standby battery while the warranty formalities is being carried out??

Regards,
Shashi

My sister's Alto was not cranking and it was a clear battery issue. ... Popped the bonnet and see a 02/09 marking on the Amaron, indicating a 2009 make. Still, 6+ years is not a bad life for a battery.
Amaron continues to amaze me with their stupendous battery life. That too on OE batteries. And with zero maintenance (no electrolyte check like in the past).

Last week the battery of our Dec2010 Astar_AT gave up - Dash lights would come up, but no juice to crank the engine. That's a life of almost 6 years, on a car that is sparingly used (30k kms).

Replaced it with a new Amaron Flo (2+2 yrs warranty) for Rs3400 (after deducting 612Rs for the old battery).

Had to retire the Amaron battery of my Baleno after 6 years of service. Though it did not have any major issues, I decided to replace owing to its age. Would not want get a sudden breakdown.

Replaced with Amaron Flo 35Ah. Paid 3600/- after getting a refund of 600/- on the old one.

Folks.. My Maruti SX4 battery died today after 4 years of life.
I am planning to go with Amaron PRO battery. When I check the compatibility, I get to see Amaron 35 Ah Battery | AAM-PR-00050B20R product but the dealers are asking me to use Amaron 35 Ah Battery | AAM-PR-00050B20L and they claim that reversing the terminal will work.

Is it recommended or should I use previous one only ?

I think that dealer is trying to push what he has in stock on you. Reversed terminal locations will, if the battery cables even fit, excessive tension and this could lead to damage to the cables or the battery itself. Go to a different dealer or try battery bhai.

Should there be an issue of tension in cables ? What I understood from him is that he will reverse the position of the battery and hence right kind of cable will be at right kind of terminal.
I checked with Battery Bhai and other online portals and it seems all of them point to the same dealer in back-end.

Tell the dealer to take a hike he's trying to palm off existing possibly old stock.

Your car needs a 'R' battery and that's what you should get. All the batteries listed here are 35AH 'R' orientation batteries.

http://www.batterybhai.com/battery-l...1/360/1/1.html

How much tension there is in the battery cables depends on the length. But why do this when there is a correct option available?

All the portals are showing *R battery but when I place the order and a local city representative calls me, none have *R battery and surprisingly all the portals (Battery vale, Battery Bhai etc.) are getting the orders executed through same vendor.

I think I might have to scout for Brick and Mortar store in Ahmedabad.
