The last time I bought from batterybhai , they delivered a battery less than a month old and their service was quite good. I have no experience with bookyourbattery but I understand these are all aggregators having tie-ups with local shops.
It was may 2019 manufactured & installed in June 2019, just a month old battery, BTW it was in sealed condition upon delivery

I ordered a 14ah battery for my RE Classic 500 from bookyourbattery last evening and got a call from them first thing in the morning. Replacement was prompt and fuss free and I'm quite impressed.
Earlier I've ordered from both batterybhai and batterywale and while they did a great job too, I'll probably stick with bookyourbattery for my next order.

The pro-rata ("warranty") discount is applied on the MRP (not discounted price). So sometimes it's actually just cheaper to buy a 'new' battery without the pro-rata discount.

The new batteries also get a 30 Month FOC replacement warranty + 25 month pro-rata discount on BatteryBhai.

Why not try Amaron?

Changed my Vento's battery only once in the last 6 years, in 2015 with an Amaron, till now no issues with the battery, no signs of battery failure too. I did not get the exact specification that day, so had installed a slightly bigger battery. Don't exactly remember the price or ratings.

Was considering it, and would have IF i purchased from BatteryBhai this time, but, the roadside guy gave me a pro-rata buyback price that was better than anything BatteryBhai had on offer, so I took that (and naturally had to stick to the same brand to avail of it).

Placed an order for an Amaron battery for an I20 Asta Petrol with Battery Bhai via the website at 3PM today, the battery was delivered and installed by 5:30PM. Got to say that was really quick, especially considering that the delivery guy came from Goregaon to Lower Parel (about 25 KM). Also, their prices were less than what a local guy had quoted by about Rs. 500.
Overall, I'd say the service was great.

Ordered a replacement 65Ah battery from bookyourbattery and I must say I was impressed. Spoke to Pavan a few times yesterday and he assured me that delivery will be done in the evening. At 7 pm he turned up at my place and replaced my dead battery. Spent 15-20 min talking cars and trying to get a sense of his business.

Would definitely recommend bookyourbattery for your battery needs if you are in Bangalore. They also have a referral discount program kicking off. PM me if you are interested in using the same.

It could be a faulty alternator or cabling issue too. Would suggest to get these checked as well at VW while the battery is still new.

The vendor called in a couple of hours and said he'd visit around 6. Finally came around 7.30 and the job was done swiftly. Pretty good service! This was done on my mum's car in Gurgaon so she's mighty glad this was done at the doorstep at a fixed price than having to visit a shop and deal with the associated hassle.

EDIT: I'd asked her to check the manufacturing date of the battery: Nov '17, which the vendor obviously said its normal. Now, I can't really attest to that but visiting a store has this benefit of selecting the battery depending on age.

definitely not OK, maximum shelf life is 90 days, and then another 90 days with a refresh charge, but if u go to any unknown service center, you might face problems with replacements, with a answer that date of manufacturing and ate of sale, there is a huge difference

While cranking yesterday night, I noticed the lights on the music player and instrument cluster flickering. But the car started normally.

Today went to a battery shop and checked the Voltage, it showed 12.4V, which was alright and told me it will work for a few more months. As I was busy, came back home and checked Batterybhai.com and saw an Amaron DIN 65AH at ₹5600 with exchange. I thought its fine, but before ordering, I called the local battery shop, they offered the same battery for ₹5000.

Lesson learnt: Online isnít the cheapest place to buy. Always enquire at your nearby shop before ordering online, most of these shops also have home delivery and replacement.

Regarding the old battery, it was an Amaron 60AH and had lasted for nearly 4 years and 5 months! So going ahead with the same brand.
