slight difference, but I dont think its costly...check it out here

Thanks bro...

need some help with all those tech jargon, how to decipher the following spec, like, what is B, LS, Ah, CCA, and how should I choose?

55B24LS - 45 Ah, 430 CCA

Technically, all lead acid batteries are wet. Inside construction basically the same.

Just that so called maintenance free is sealed away from user tampering with it.

Not completely seal, you will notice there is a small hole at the side of the battery (on top). If you turn your battery vertically, the acid will come out.

Quite true, for venting out hydrogen during charging. But there are fully sealed type of MF battery that won't spill despite the vent hole.

My experience are Yokohama is decent, Delkor is also not bad, and Century Marathoner disappointing. Now trying the Century Ultramax, hopefully much better but not sure yet coz have only used for a few months now.

How to choose you ask ? Use back the same specs as the one in your car now or manufacturer recommendations.

Anyway I cannot really decipher the early part except that's normally the size, voltage, plates, etc coding
The LS is probably to tell you the terminal orientation, which is left/right to correspond to your car design terminal leads

45Ah is 45 Ah the capacity rating of the battery, i.e it can deliver 45A for 1 hour.. so if you only use 1A, the battery can theoretically last 45 hours
430 CCA is the cold cranking current rating, how much current the battery can deliver in cold weather to start the motor, i.e winter
since the most current drawn is when starting the motor when cold.

Anyway, probably better battery expert lurking around LYN and wait for a reply from them if any.

Batteries in Malaysia last shorter because of heat.

Higher CCA batteries should last longer.

But one should test their alternator as well, as too high or too low voltage will kill battery

Most batteries (Century, Ameron and Panasonic) are of similar technology. But do to weather and vibration, they typically have shorted lifecycles (1-3 years)

In Canada, where roads are smoother, and weather much colder, their batteries lasts 5-8 years.

So the diff between 46b24 n 55b24 is just the 55b can last longer due to capacity but their rating 45ah/20hr is the same.

I believe the 55B has longer reserve capacity even though the rating 45AH rating is the same.

mod to move your battery to the boot away from the engine heat.
battery will last longer.

for brand yokohama is very good.

want long lasting...

Amaron....my car previously i owned for 7 years... using amaron when i got the car.. never changed. when i bought the car it already had that battery in it... so the battery is maybe about 7-8 years old.

it only died coz i didnt start the car for 2-3 weeks. if i did i think it would have lasted longer.

Err.. You use your car multiple times a day as a daily driver? Hard to believe MF lasting that long.

no i dont. i only start it up once every 2-3 days for 10 mins.

but for the first 4-5 years of ownership it was a daily driver.... u can search for amaron in this thread and ull see another daily driver using amaron for 7 years.

anyway.. amaron is known for lasting ridiculously long.

they werent kidding with their tag line.

I see.. No worries, I'm actually using an Amaron Go battery and it's my first.. Came with 18 months warranty. 17 months and about 34K km later and engine still cranks as if it was just installed. So far so good. Will give it an official seal of approval once it reaches the 3 years mark. rclxms.gif

If you notice all new battery type (normal non DIN type) will use JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) to replace the 'NS' series. Most of the battery will display the old 'NS' for cross reference.

Battery can be same size but different CCA and capacity. The first 2 digit is battery performance (eg: 55B24R)

Example 55B24R, the first 2 digits, i.e 55 is indication of the battery CCA/ capacity
http://www.baj.or.jp/e/car_battery/car03.html

Conversion chart of NS series battery to JIS. The max power for NS40Z/L is '42'. Normal one is '36' for the same size. Based on the conversion chart it looks like NS40 is lower capacity than NS40Z.
Battery NS to JIS conversion chart.

If you looks at Lazada, there are 2 grades of battery being bearing the same 'NS' code (NS40ZL) but different JIS
Varta NS40ZL with JIS code 34B19L (lower capacity)
Hitachi MFX NS40ZL with JIS code 40B19L (higher capacity)

when your car has turbo and the battery is located right smack next to it, wiser to buy normal, non-MF battery.

If you're lazy about topping up water periodically, why fret when most SC will do that for you at every service?
