    Hiya peeps..
    Very best advice I could offer is do not buy cheap.. Buy cheap and you will get cheap.. and believe me, while they SAY they have X capacity no one is really sure what they base their figures on !!!!

    Hopefully Dave ( N ), Eddie ( V B ) or Peter from John Cross will be able to recommend an actual make for you :thumb:

    Just a suggestion, dont rule out halfords, may not be cheapest, but if it packs up anywhere in the UK during the warranty period, youll get it changed ASAP.

    get something like a trojan or other forklift / access platform battery as they will do what they say on the label

    As said before, dont buy cheap ones, they do not last. Buy batteries where you can easily take them back if in doubt as to capacity left.

    Buying on line can be fraught with difficulty when they might need returning.
