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
