That is scarily-cheap! What brand is it? I go for MotoBatt AGM and have only ever had one go down. Probably nine in use at the moment, with an average price close to £60.

My last battery was a motobatt and died rather quickly, BUT I'm pretty sure it was the faulty reg rec that killed it. Just in case it wasn't I went back to the original Yuasa yb9 thingy
