Default new battery

Didn't want to start a new thread, hence using this related one...which is the best place to buy battery (exide) for 800 ? Could you please suggest places near to JP ngr (1st/2nd phase)/J'nagar/Kormangla/double road/jc rd/gandhi bazar etc would do.

A.S.S are quoting 4.5k and 5k for maintenance free battery with 4 & 5 yr warranty, I am looking for something around 2.5-3k with 2-3 yrs warranty/gurantee.

Am buying within 2 days.

Smile Putting Coke to remove corrision

Guys,

I am not sure if you have heard this one whether it is a myth I don’t know.

But has someone tried putting coke to dissolve the corrosion off the battery terminals.I have heard it works.

Never heard about this. All I heard, know and have tried is to put hot water on the terminals to remove the deposits etc.. It works..
