    Hi

    Having just returned from a four week holiday, I was somewhat suppressed to find my car battery flat, even the doors would open.

    I bought the car last October, it came with a brand new battery that was fitted the day before collection (Brand Yuasa)

    This raises the following question, I do understand that there is a current draw on cars but four weeks ? should I look to get a new - dare I say better battery ?

    if so what is recommended (I am an fan of Varta or Bosch) ? I know that I should keep to the same 'AH' as the original, but I don't what that is

    Many thanks for any suggestions (other than Halfords)

    Ian

    I like Yuasa and particularly their 9000 series AGM design battery designed for stop/start cars. TPS sell these but they won’t always sell to none account holders, the 9000 isn’t cheap but after a few years of selling them, so far so good.
