Tayna for example.  :y
:y I've always had good service from them

Never heard of them till now.

I paid 35 for mine with a 5 year warranty. ::) ::)
Bet that warranty doesn't cover repeatedly draining it flat ::)

My boss decided to spend 40 a battery on the works vans. 5 months later one of them broke down at Stansted with what looked suspiciously like a fried ecu :-X

Transpired that the battery was totally dead. 100 later and apparently all fixed, although the person who drives it is the self appointed fitter ::)

Point being that cheap batteries don't take abuse too kindly.

I don't know what you naughty boys do with your cars. My battery is seven years old and seems fine.

Supplied, fitted and warranted by the AA themselves.

(I have heard a few things from the mobile teams that I cant print on here, but the one thing that did drop out in conversation made it seem they dont allways fit brand new batteries.) :-X

Thumbs  up to the AA :y

Came out within 30 mins, cheekily asked if they could fit the hard wire kit for the booster lead & CTEK charger leads. np probs there.

Nipped back to Halfords and they swapped me the GB70 for the GB50 so that came home and got  fully charged., so its nice to be mobile again.

Plus with the advice given I found a hard case for the NOCO on the Tayna site so a good week so far.

Bonus is I also have a huge mobile phone back up battery and a decent torch in the car all the time. :y :y
