My leisure battery has let me down 2 days on the trot. It's a 88ah about a year old. Iv taken it to Euro car parts today it's 45% charged and the health was 24% but not enough to run my varistream controller. I charge it every night. Any recommendations for my next battery please.

Halfords all day long. I researched leisure battery's for months. Any problems, all they do is plug it into diag machine. If it comes up faulty, its changed instantly.

I got 2 new batteries for my van. 1 came duff. Got auto electrician to fill form in. Not good enough. In the end I popped it down to Halfords fro a free test. Test said faulty. The excepted that, then replaced it.

Some leisure batteries are just car batteries with a bigger price. There is a standards fro them. Only a few manufactures reached it. Halfords were one of those.YUASA make there batteries

Yep; but they cost a lot more. £108 delivered from Tanya. Numax £64.00 delivered from the same company.

 

They weigh similar amounts (21kgs) so does this mean that the Trojan has a similar amount of lead as the Numax? Weight of Leisure batteries was usually an indicator of quality as the more lead they used, the heavier the battery.
