I don't have the battery specs, we bought the Bosch S5 battery for i10. Amaron is good too, had a green Amaron in my bike.
My bad. Somehow forgot checking the site under 'Dealer Locator' as I had been checking all the sub sections under 'Authorized Service Network'. I have been tricked by my mind to believe it was an un-authorized dealer, reading quickly 'Pricing: Comes with Bill & Bosch Warranty' and another post mentioning about the warranty not honored.

Thanks for the correction and the additional info on Amaron. Now I am confident that I will be getting a battery from an authorized dealer, either Bosch or Amaron.

P.S: It would be great if you could ask the moderators to update the first post to include the word 'Authorized dealer' somewhere around 'Services offered' or 'Products sold'. Still better, the thread title can contain the word 'Authorized'

Though I got an Amaron Flo from the Amaron pit-stop Narayanan Manikatan & Company at Sreekaryam, I had been to Govind Auto to get a wiper replaced. Seems professional people at Govind Auto, but the price for the Bosch battery was quoted some 450/- more than the same battery at their Sreekaryam branch. But since the Bosch S5 at the Sreekaryam branch was a year old, I opted against it.

Though Govind Auto took the full MRP on the wiper, it was replaced by a staff in seconds and he helped us reverse a steep incline.

You should have gone there when the owner is available there and should have introduced as a team-bhp ian and you are sure to get a discount.
He is very much aware of team-bhp and how much enthusiastice we are.

Car batteries typically have 6 cells and the indicator is 'usually' connected to just one cell. It just indicates whether that particular cell is healthy. It is better to get a free check up at the battery dealer every 6 months.
