Yesterday used their services to buy a battery for my 2007 Honda City. Instead of ordering online, I placed the order on the phone. The numbers for a tele-order (9:30 AM to 7:00 PM) are 9555995119 and 9555895119.

On calling them, they will ask you the following; your city's name, car's model and the battery which you want. I exactly knew which battery model I wanted, so directly gave him the details and he confirmed the price. If you do not know the model number/name, go through their website and decide before calling. Before hanging up he will confirm your chosen battery and the price, if you have a promo code tell him now itself. He will then ask you to message your contact details and address on the same number you called, I even mentioned the battery model and car model in the message so that there is no mistake anywhere.

10 minutes after I sent my details, I got a confirmation message which had my car's model and battery model mentioned along with the order number. Then, after around 15 minutes I got a call from the battery dealer. Now here I faced a small problem, the model which I ordered was not in stock and the dealer asked me if it's fine if he can get it the next day. I checked with some of my known contacts and Amarons were indeed out of stock. I agreed to his request when I came to know that he was an authorised stockist/dealer for Amaron and he told me that Amarons were out of stock in the whole of Mumbai. He assured me that they will arrive the next day for sure, next morning he called up and told me that the battery has arrived and he can come anytime I want.

As per my request, the guy sent his technician in the evening and was on time. I checked the manufacturing date, model name and asked him to go ahead. The fitment was done in 10 minutes plus 5 minutes for testing, handing over the warranty card and bill. Paid him the money and a small tip because that poor guy came all the way from the suburbs in rush hour traffic. All in all I'm very happy with their services, would rate them a 9/10, not a 10 because of the out of stock issue nothing else.

The battery I bought was Amaron Hi Life Flo (AAM-FL-00042B20L), 48 months warranty period.

A question for experts: can this happen? Or will a failing/failed battery cause just a starting problem? Of course, you are exposed to that if the engine is shut off at traffic lights...

I recently bought a new Amaron battery from a shop around the corner and it was obvious the way batteries are made and sold today, the online route has now become very workable. All one has to do is make sure that the battery is manufactured in the past 2-3 months and get the warranty card filled in. That too could change if an online registration practice starts.

Used services of BatteryBhai last weekend. Our 13 month old WagonR's battery was on its last legs. Since the car is used commercially, there are a lot of startups in a day, and frankly, I was happy with the battery lasting over a year. Note the stock battery was not maintenance free which meant that frequent checks and top-ups were needed.

Placed order at around 11am and the concerned dealer called me and took appointment for 2pm. He came on an Activa and the job was done in 10 mins. He carried the stamp and filled the warranty card right in front of me. Warranty starts from the date of purchase. He also said that for the next time, call him directly and he will match BatteryBhai's price and take online payment as well.

Got the same deal, except another Rs. 50 was waived off as I found a coupon code online. Was quoted nothing less than Rs. 4000 from the outside for Exide.

From what I heard, frequent startups cause the battery health to reduce. Not sure if the battery will fail just like that, but you will surely get the warning signs. My Chevy Spark used to lose the charge in 3-4 days if it not used. We had to resort to jump starting the car. Got the battery changed and all is now good. If you feel that the battery is gonna go and you are not immediately changing the batteries, keep jumper cables in the boot. Most people will never say no to a quick jumpstart if you are ever stranded.

Jumper cables is a good idea, now that cars are not supposed to be push started.

But warning signals is what I thought will be there and if the car starts at home, I can't see how a weak battery can ever cause one to be stranded before getting to a destination as long as the engine isn't shut down on the way.

I bought an Amaron Flo battery for my Ertiga Diesel through BatteryBhai.com yesterday. The experience was quite pleasant. I ordered at 12:00 PM and the battery was installed by 2:30 PM, that too on a Sunday!!

I paid INR 5369/- (after exchange of my old battery as well as INR 50/- discount using a Coupon code).

Thumbs up Re: Car Batteries, Home delivery & installation - Batterybhai.com & other online vendors

Today morning, as usual, started the car to go to office and it wouldn't crank, all the dash lights were blinking and later on the door locks were also not locking / unlocking. The car is a 2 year old Skoda rapid 1.5 TDI which has run roughly 30k kms. I came back home and checked out the various online battery stores and found that http://batteryboss.in/ listed the lowest price for amaron 60AH, ordered one with a card on delivery payment option. In 10 minutes i got a call confirming the time slot which was 2 hours from the order time. The guy almost made it at the promised time, he came in an scooter with a card swiping machine, installed the battery in 10 mins and voila, I am ready to rev again. This is so convenient, professional and saves time and energy too. Though I was initially worried if the technician will be good enough, he allayed all my fears and seemed to know his work well. My only advice is, search around in few of the portals for the pricing as everyday someone or the other is launching new online service and may offer competitive prices when compared to the established guys. By the way the battery came well packed like how you would get it from the showroom, so no worries about any foul play.
Price :- INR 5300
Experience :- priceless
