Hi All, can any one recommend new battery 12v, mine has just died, lack of driving the Z and battery terminals still connected to battery, battery is 8 years old, its was 600 CCA, RC110. I tried charging it for around 15 hrs and nothing. Are there newer technology types? thank you all in advance.

 

John

It's sulphated up, and a cell has shorted, most likely.

Have a look at the Full River brand batteries based in Sydney, they are a sealed unit, so they can be posted.

Yep go for a sealed unit, no more battery acid to destroy your tray.

Thanks for the recommendations dat2kman and gav240z. I purchased a sealed 12v 650 CCA with RC107 from a little local battery supplier/manufacturer in Clifton Hill. They've been around for nearly 70 years, very knowledgeable, old school guy's, they also do the rubber type batteries for vintage vehicles if any one is interested or looking. I'll hook the battery up tonight and take the Z out for a spin, cant believe i last drove it over the Xmas break.

 

regards
