I am not terribly keen as the battery technology is not given ie Lead Acid, AGM or GEL etc. Varta batteries are not listed which I see as a major omission. There are lots of useful battery threads on here. Battery websites are very good at Tanya Batteries and Battery Megastore.

We are looking at replacing ours. The one in now was with the van new 5 years ago but starting to hold less charge (I think). It is a Numax. Tayna recommend their own brand "Euroline" anyone had one?

It's natural for a company like Tayna to recommend their own brand, but for me, like you I have been using Numax in this van and our previous van and have been very happy with them, so why take a chance, stick with Numax, their not expensive.

Just do your self a favour and stick well clear of Banner.

We need new leisure batteries so was trying to do some research and decide whether to stick to Banner or change brands. Came across this put online today by the National Caravan Council

Might be helpful so some other members so here is the link

The scheme is meaningless, based entirely on what the battery manufacturers tell the NCC.

Banner are the worst batteries I've ever come across I would steer well clear of them and go for a recognised brand such as Exide, Varta, Sonnenschein etc.

The NCC is funded by manufacturers and dealers, their Verified Battery Scheme is a total con, the results are derived from the manufacturers own test, no independant testing is required, it's a joke. One of the requierments, to claim a life of 200 cycles the manufacturer only has to test their own product for 6 cycles.

There was a thread on here when the NCC review came out ... have a search for it.

Oh, don't forget your popcorn and fizzy drink first though!

One in the boss's car & daughter's car their starter batteries appear to be quite good but I would expect like a majority of leisure batteries the lesiure version will just be a starter battery with a different label.

I think @Lenny HB and @PhilandMena may have something to say. They used to disagree with one another about this scheme, but I now think they are in agreement ................. that it just a con
Your right and I was definitely wrong. I thought they were representing Joe public untill the sham was exposed. Biggest con since Jesus Christ, imo. I now have a pair of the Exide 650 ETC fitted and there going well. Far to early to make a judgement call.

Incidently, some changes since my last visit. Parking for caravans and motorhomes on the road leading to the wild camping area has been banned and official signs posted. On the up side, as you enter the wild camping area thete is an official sign directing one to the black waste dump. Looks like the town at last have provided an official dump. I have yet to find it but think it's the manhole cover nearer the estuary. I will check out and update you. Also, it is absolutely rammed with motorhomes. This is at the entrance to the wild camping area. Must be a massive upsurge in Ttossers, then. Oh dear! We can't slow that can We. Most of them are not Brits either, it's like a desiese that's out of control. I won't sleep at night.

I think that's a good move, most of them were taking the p*ss with chairs and sun loungers out over the pavement.

How did you guys manage to persuade the brewers to release a beer named after your birth year?(y)
Or are they trying to look after your health by saying Do Not Open until 6 minutes past 7?:confused:

I was at my local Motorhome repair center last month. A guy with a two year old Motorhome was in getting a new habitation battery installed, His Banner had lasted just two years. The mechanic said they won't fit Banner batteries as they have had lots of problems with them. I had one in my Defender which last 18 months. I got it changed under the guarantee. I would look at Varta. Just saying.
