Overall an EXCELLENT experience and would definitely recommend carbatteryexpert.com to anyone looking to change their batteries online.
Checked carbatteryexpert for online quote of battery for my Punto. The Thane cost displayed for DIN 50 was Rs 4025 with old battery exchange whereas for Mumbai the cost seen was Rs 4225. There is an offer going on for Rs 75/- off on battery buy. Called up their customer care for the 2.5% charge for online payments, the lady assured the 2.5% charge equivalent would be handed over to me in cash by the technician. I was promised an assured delivery within 3 hrs. But they operate till 6 pm only for Thane area. Will be going with them as they are the cheapest amongst the online and store quotes.

I asked them about the date of battery manufacture, they said the battery may be 2 months old, however the battery warranty would start from the day of purchase.

What model of Amaron did you buy and what Din?

Ordered the Amaron AAM-FL-550114042 (DIN 50) battery from carbatteryexpert.com. Smooth payment process, got a call within 10 mins of order placing. They asked my preference of time for installation. The guy comes 10 mins before scheduled time, replaces the battery within 10 mins, checks the battery for voltages, hands over the warranty card + bill + Rs 100 (2.5% charges of online payments). All done within 20 mins. Super satisfied. The battery is July 2016 manufactured. The engine cranks super smoothly and the battery voltages was as per requirements with AC, headlights and 12V supply On. Will recommend this website as they have competitive prices.

Only point of concern was the installation guy comes on an Activa with the battery and he said it took him 25 mins to travel from Borivali to Thane. he said he could have come much more faster if required.

The guy who came to change it on my car also came on a kinetic. We have a podium parking which is open to visitors while the basement parking isnt open to visitors. I asked him if he could take it down in the lift and replace it as my parking is in the basement and he said its very heavy. Nevertheless, took him down on his vehicle itself and asked him to change it.

After 6 years of purchase, stock battery (Amaron) on my Optra Magnum Diesel died. I logged on to letsbuybattery.com and placed an order for replacement. Price quoted and process for replacement was pleasing. Will recommend to others. However, please note that letsbuybattery.com is an aggregator - so the level of service may vary from location to location because of different vendors

Just got my fabia's battery changed through carbatteryexpert.com.
Placed order on their website at 12pm and within 1 min received a call from them. Lady over the phone asked my preferred time of installation, i said 2 pm is preferred. The guy arrived at 1.20pm. Installed battery in 5 min gave me receipt and warranty card and left. I compared prices with batterybhai, batterywale and local vendors carbatteryexpert offered best price. Actually my old battery was still under 4th year of warranty which as per local vendors' calculation i was entitled to get 20% off MRP. But this still came out to be expensive compared to buying a new one (strange but true). If i decided to claim warranty, i would have had to pay Rs. 5175. I paid Rs. 4925 for the same model of Amaron DIN 60 battery.
Overall very happy with carbatteryexpert.

Car: Maruti Suzuki Ritz Zxi
Registration Month & Year: Jan 2010
Engine: 1.2L K12B Petrol
Stock Battery : Exide 38B20RMF
Battery Manufacturing Date: December 2009
Service Life: 6 Years & 10 Months

Replaced with: Amaron Hi-Life Pro AAM-PR-00050B20R
Warranty: 30 Months Free of Cost + 30 Months Pro Rata
Cost: Rs3,600/- with old battery buy back
Vendor: BatteryBhai.com
Local Vendor Quote: Rs.3750/- with old battery buy back

I placed the order with batterybhai.com at about 1100 Hrs and scheduled the installation at 1300 Hrs. The technician was unable to reach at the scheduled time and I was informed of this when I called up the vendor when it was past the scheduled time. I asked them to call me before starting to my place for installation which they did promptly in next attempt. The battery supplied was manufactured just 2 months ago (August 2016) and warranty card & invoice were handed over to me before commencing installation.
The technician was polite and carried necessary tools for the installation - all that's required are a size 8 spanner and a Philips screw driver.
The technician was not carrying petroleum jelly or alternative to cover the terminals and when asked, he conveyed it is not required for "Amaron Maintenance free batteries". I firmly requested him to stop the installation upon which he assured that it will be done when the car goes to the service center. I said - enough, and went to my apartment and supplied the technician with petroleum jelly which was then applied properly.
I feel, it's not a problem with the vendor, but the general attitude of technicians in India.

All in all, the experience was good and I find it very convenient to have a service conducted in the coziness of one's own garage while utilizing the payment options available online.
I would definitely recommend Home delivery and Installation for car batteries online.

I had a problem with my Polo, the other day. The car was being worked on (some audio system installation but all amps were off) The car was unlocked for 3 hours and hence, this drained out the battery (I have a few things running directly on the battery, like a DVR and a day-night ORVM)
The Polo is just over a year old, and I had an Exide battery on the car as stock. It was a DIN45 battery but a 36 AH one. The battery gave way in RECORD time, that is, in less than 15 months. I was extremely disappointed, and despite knowing that the battery would be covered in warranty and I would get a replacement for free, I decided to skip the ordeal of going to VW and haggling with them over this or trying to prove it in front of them. I also had quite a few electricals running on my car, so I didn't really feel like getting an Exide battery, even as a free replacement.
I decided to check Batterybhai. I didn't even bother to call my local dealer, as I was sure that they wouldn't have what I wanted. I wanted a 45 AH Amaron Battery AAM-FL-545106036 in place of the 36 AH battery, which would mean a 20 percent hike in the battery holding capacity and that would also mean that the alternator and charging circuit would have to work that much lesser.
Ordered the battery in the evening at 9 pm. Got a call at 10 am the next day.
The battery was a brand new one with a recent manufacturing date. I happened to ask the guy why my Exide failed so quickly. He said it could have been a defective cell/s or then, just plain bad luck. He showed me the indicator on my old battery, and I was now relieved that I did have a bad battery and that my decision to get a new battery was not premature.
They finished their job within 10 minutes, cranked car, checked voltage, gave me my warranty card and bill, and we shook hands and left.

Again, great service. Superb convenience, good prices and no fall in customer satisfaction from the last time I used them (for my Cruze)

I am a satisfied customer who now has 4 years of warranty on his battery
