Which battery should I get?

Postby andyj1888 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 1:13 pm

Newbie here.

The battery on my 60 plate megane i-music vvt 1.6 petrol car seems to be dying. The last two days i have had to jump start the car. Over the xmas period I hardly used my car and when doing so it was only for short trips.

So my question is which battery should I go for? I have limited knowledge of cars etc but a quick google search for batteries for this type of car range from £40 to £200. I am pretty skint right now and also have an MOT due soon so the temptation to go for the cheapest option is strong.

Any help is much appreciated.

Hello Andy, put a rough location (County is close enough) in your profile so that it shows in your details.

On this occasion I have a cracking battery going spare which, if suitable, you're local to me and can pick up you can have for little money.

Hi,
there is a new culture of battery now on some later model cars.
Best to put your registration into eurocarparts and see what comes up.
I got one from there very reasonable and delivered free.
Bob.
