Now i am in a dilemma. My Axia will turn 2 yrs in few months time. Its a manual car btw.
It has already 50K plus mileage due to partly doing Grab.
battery still factory original panasonic. I bought a Volt meter, which plugs into the cigratte. So far showing 12.5-12.6V on a cold engine and shows 12.8 after running for a while.

lately saw some white battery dust (dont know the corect term) which i read if there is some..its a sign battery gonna die soon.

should i change for preventive measures? Battery warranty from Perodua definitely out - only 1 yr or 20K . So i will buy from outside because i know P2 will charge Rm200 plus for ori battery.

If I were you, I'd just change it for peace of mind. The battery will need changing sooner or later. Delaying it causes you anxiety and worry, which cannot be good for health.
If you think a dead battery won't cause much inconvenience, it's ok to delay. But to me, a dead battery will definitely be troublesome and in the haste to replace it, I might actually be spending more money compared to having done my price comparison/research.

Change. Should read above 13V on a running car. Get Amaron, pretty good and not expensive. If you order online and get free shipping and discount vouchers or discount via credit card then really value.

Oops, maybe I didnt mentioned clearly biggrin.gif .
I meant - If my engine is switched off after driving for a while, it slowly drops from above 13V to somewhere around 12.8V.
But if the engine is running then it goes beyond 13V. And its around 13.6V.

Okey noted, I will go online shopping and check out the prices of Amaron biggrin.gif

When car is running should be 13.7V to 14.7V. I guess you can use your battery for a while more. But its definitely weak.

Hi, what is the current price for Century 40ZL now? RM185 consider expensive or not? I don't want trade in with old battery. If trade in can get RM170.

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........

hi all,

my update after 10 months:

I bought Amaron from an online seller, he delivered to my house and assembled for me, after a few months I have a problem-the battery lost power after only 2 months, I called him, he came actually, but later found out that it was my alternator problem. Sent the car to a workshop got it fixed, the battery till now is still good.
