With batteries and Discovery you need to get the best you can, so how do you judge this?

Disco ES has lots of nice electrical bits that need powering, so I would suggest a minimum of an 85a/hr battery.

For starting a Discovery diesel on a cold morning you need lots of CCA (cold cranking amps), I would suggest a minimum of 800cca.

There is a company called Tanya Batteries (do a Google search) that do Numax marine batteries with a cca of 1000, that'll start your Disco in the coldest of weather.

Minimum recommended CCA for a Disco is 570CCA, but as thebiglad said get the largest CCA you can fit.

but make sure that, if you have the "top hat" shaped clamp, that the battery has the correct cut-outs to enable you to clamp it - I know that Halfrauds recomend a battery that doesnt fit!

I'm just in to the 9th year with my 072 Halfords battery so I think I wll be looking for a replacement soon and the Numax battery looks good, but what happens if wish to claim under the warranty do you send it back to Tayna and pay the carrage and be without a battery untill they agree it's duff.

There's something to be said for buying locally may be.

Hi all, Ive got a bosch s4 027 630a battery fitted to my 96 tdi and in the snow weve just had and minus 3 temps when i went out in the morning to start her she turned over slowly, jump start no probs then fine untill the next morning. I've had the battery and alternator checked they are fine. Has anyone got any ideas as to the cause?

Cheers dave

It could be poor earths but to be honest if it's started to misbehave in the colder weather it'll be the battery, unfortunately.

Just my opinion but Halfords every time for batterys they are all over, they swop them without needing a mongolian sheeps foot and a soulth african egal feather!

And get a trade card first and they are not that overpriced!

But I know its not for everyone!
