Hi all,

My current battery is showing signs of weakening, only just a bit short of two years - would it considered short? FYI I'm driving a 12 years old Vios, using normal type battery (not maintenance-free) .

Should I go for maintenance-free type? Please give some known good and lasting ones, plus their known market selling price.

Thank you everyone........

I used all known Malaysia brand maintenance full and maintenance free. All last no less than more than 2 years, approaching 3 years. Even original battery from Perodua now would be 3 years in 3 months.

Just use any brand as long as no cap ayam, would be OK. I prefer maintenance free so that once installed I can forget about it until showing sign of dying.

any special tools other than those needed to open the battery terminal clamps? I mean do we need to charge it up first?

It's easy and with my last change.. Didn't need to charge up the new battery before install.. Using Amaron now and loving it. Comes with 18 months warranty.. Just follow the instructions as video below. Note, I don't have the terminal pads or spray can at the end to prevent corrosion.. Will try to get those next time. If your battery is completely flat before change, then prepare to re-setup your HU, preset radio stations, clock, etc..

thanks. I kept reading Amaron brand which I haven't seen before, is it a new brand? and according to the above lazada links, the warranty is only 12 months, how can you get 18 months?

It depends on which Amaron model you buy. The Amaron Go batteries have a 12-months warranty, while the Amaron Hi-Life batteries have an 18 months warranty. The Hi-Life is a better battery by spec of course.

Mine's Amaron Go and got it from a dealer back in December 2016. Tested the battery voltage levels recently via OBD2 port and all's normal. This is a daily driven car (26K km later) and it still cranks very fast, without hesitation.. Previous battery lasted just shy of a year. First time I'm using this brand and hope it lasts till at least next year.. thumbup.gif
