when it comes to car batteries in india EXIDE is considered the most reliable brand its like maruti in cars and bajaj scooters .i may sound a bit old fashioned but i trust the brand my earlier generation used to trust,for me it is the only brand i trust ,i had experimented once with aamron but did not find the results satisfactory.

Guys, A word of caution to all car owners.

Lot of service stations even good ones specialise in replacing your good battery with a dud battery, and then bill you for replacing same. Same goes for tyres.
CHEATERS ALL!! mark your batteries and tyres with marker pens.

I go by the Funda of cost of ordinary battery of any make which has reputation for good service.
Go for Exide or Amaron , work out the price divided by wears of reasonable warranty given ie 12 months will be there minimum for the cheapest battery, and see what is the cost per month.
Now take the costliest one i,e maintenace free, etc.and divide by warranty period and find for yourself which works out cheaper in the longer run.
I buy the normal battery which gives 12 months warranty and it gives almost double the life for my Zen car of 2000 model.and TOP up DISTILLED WATER every month, you will get almost three years or four years if the maintenace if good.

Mr Rao's suggestion makes sense ,as your running permonth is just fifty kms you can go for the top up models which are almost 40%lower priced than a maintainance free battery ,but at the same time i woudnt advice a localy made battery as it spills acid and water and spoils the paint around the battery box the battery water overflow is a normal thing in any local battery .if i were in your place i would go with the lower end version of exide or sf.

Dear Mr deelip,
as a passionate car lover myself i salute your experience and love for cars ,your experience is almost my age, i also recommended the same brand as i trust exide and sf brands the most i do not say others do not make good batteries but who can deny the reliabality and reputation of exide which has been built over decades.

if you don't mind, can I say a word about Exide? It conks down the very next month of lapse of warranty period . Very strange but true. Had the same experience with 7 Exide batteries so far, in spite of regular maintainance.

as you rightly said strange ,bcoz your car seems to keep a record of the warranty period and conks down after a month ,seems your car has bcome an astrological baba stranger you have been repeating the same mistake 7 times in your life generally people learn from experience and mend their ways after once or max twice.STRANGE BUT TRUE.

haha Rajuv,

Thanx for your funny remarks. But it was true, those 7 batteries were purchased within a span of 2 years for my different cars and it happens like that. Cant help. Now I switched over to Panasonic brand and I am totally satisfied with the service with all the batteries I purchased giving a life double the warranty period time. Any way, I took your remarks in a lighter vein. ;)
