Thanks a ton!!

Having owned a Palio 1.2 for 12+ years, I can confirm that the factory specification for Palio 1.2 Petrol is DIN 50 (not DIN 45 and not DIN 55)

DIN is simply the Ampere Hour (AH) electical capacity of the battery. Please go for DIN 50 (stands for 50 AH) for Palio 1.2

Exide Matrix comes with DIN 50 rating, I last bought it a couple of years back through Batterybhai.com


The first battery (Exide DIN-50) lasted about 3 years

The second battery (Exide Freedom DIN 55) was going strong even after 7.5 years I replaced it just as a preventive measure with a new battery, didn't want to get stranded unexpected and wait any longer.

I wouldn't recommend a DIN-55 based on personal experience of frequent blown fuses. (In theory DIN-55 is no harm as it is just a higher capacity battery)

Third time around and wiser, I stuck to original specification and went for Exide Matrix DIN-50

Just checked the owners manual and it stated car needs a 50Ah battery, which translates into DIN50. My car's been running fine with a DIN45 though, I'll let it run as long as it runs. I stand corrected though

Every dealer I spoke to suggested exide din50 or amaron din45 as if the two are equivalent!

Yep. this is quite common with a lot of battery dealers. We changed the batteries on 3 Palio 1.6s recently and each dealer was trying to push the Amaron DIN 45 simply because they did not have stock of the Exide Din 50.

From asking around, was informed that Exide is the only one that manufactures the DIN 50 and they seem to be hard to come by unless the dealer specifically asks for them to be sent out. Not sure why and maybe i was mislead with this bit of info.

Exide DIN50 is way too expensive, even higher than DIN55. My Palio 1.2 is running on DIN45 (third battery) for close to 5 years now.

My previous one was DIN55 and the original one came with car was DIN50. Ironically the current one is the most lasting of them all.

Glad to know din45 works and works better! I can sleep tight now 😃

Bumping on an old thread. My palio S10 needs a battery replacement. Can anybody tell me what is the OEM specification for the same and which brand to go for.

Battery bhai says 45 AH while choosing the palio petrol option (no 1.6 available).

Please help.

Amaron Flo 45AH works very well on the 1.6, going by my experience. The critical number - Cold Cranking Amperes (CCA) - is around 350 which is much more than the amps required on the 1.6 (250 as per the workshop manual).

If you can get Amaron Pro 45 AH (with CCA of over 500), nothing like it. Despite being smaller than DIN 50, it lasted 8 years in my 1.6

SunnyBoi has a s10 if I am right....

Exide DIN50 fits snugly in the battery compartment. DIN 45 is smaller & DIN55 may not fit.

I am using Amaron Flo 45AH on my 1.2 nv Sport since last three years. Touch wood, I haven't faced any issues so far.

Personally my experience with Exide (both car and bike) batteries haven't been good. Amaron seems to be better performer (car) and AMCO was my preferred brand for bikes.

BTW, I purchased Amaron from BatteryBhai and got the best deal. Delivery and fitting was on schedule and the battery was just three months old (i.e. mfg. date) when I bought it.

DIN45 is smaller but is still a snug fit. I have the original battery strap so the battery doesn't move about despite it being smaller.
