    Hi - just had a new battery fitted in the van - the mechanical battery not the leisure one - and have just noticed that it is 640 amps, whereas the old battery was 630 amps. This was apparently because they had no 630's in the correct size to physically fit in the van.
    Is this likely to cause any issues?
    As usual, nothing relevant in the instruction manual!

    Thanks!

    Assuming that's the cranking amps?

    That will be fine.

    no problem whatsoever.

    the higher the CCA the better, and longer, the battery can spin the starter motor.

    in basic terms it defines how quickly the battery can release power.
