looks obvious to me.
harvest are actually made tougher then regular batteries in order to take care of the extra vibrations in a tractor, so my vote obviously goes for that

pro batteries come in the regular series too, like for the maruti/accent/ gypsies etc, they offer 60 months zero maintainence warranty

yea with the car on it should be between 13.8-14.3 volts and with the loads n it should be 13.5-14 volts any thing out of this and the alternator is malfunctioning

it was showing 13.xx without load and dropped to 11.xx with load.so got the alternator serviced and he changed some part not sure exactly but now it reads 14.05 without load and 13.8x with load.

so i guess the alternator was to blame..

Exide Eternity was introduced in 2003 and seems to have disappeared from shops totally. Never seen one. I just checked Exide's site but it's not their either. Can you please post the link in this forum?

Thanks. They seem to have only one model, in what looks like a 35-40AH capacity, with L/R variants. I am not sure what car takes this particular model. And yes, for that AH capacity it is way overpriced. You are essentially paying for the warranty. Better choice in Exide is a Matrix or ATB which are far more reasonable.

May be the AH suits M800 but who will pay such a price for an 800?

I have Amaron on all three of my cars and have not had any problem to date. I have also used Exide in my Esteem for 4 years and did'nt have much problem with that either. My old 800 used to run in those days with Amco which was terrific, the batteries (not maintenance free) used to last me close to 4 years, one even lasted me for 5 ! Not too sure if Amco batteries are still around now but in the 80's and early 90's, one had only Amco and Exide as standard fitments, Amaron came in much later.

A M800 takes a 32A battery. Come to think of it, a 35-40AH battery will suit cars between 1000 to 1500 cc petrol engines. The OHC/NHC, Lancer, Esteem (not AX), Toyota Corolla all come with 35A batteries. Obviously you need to take the physical dimensions of the Eternity into account whilst considering it for your particular car.

An Exide Matrix 35AH a fully sealed battery with CA/CA plates comes for 4600 all inclusive in MH while the ATB is about Rs 500 less. This is a huge %age difference over the price of an Eternity.

Regards,

I installed Amaron Harvest 90AH battery. I got 600 bucks for the old battery, I finally ended up paying Rs.4542 for the new battery.

Should be between 50-60AH. Please check the battery model installed in your car. The model # generally indicates the AH capacity.
