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........

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

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?

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.
