After 10+ years my old Yuasa is showing yellow/green on tender, so I bought a replacement one from Tayna batteries in UK...seems no shortage of stock here (yet)...

Popped my new SSB Powersport Lithium in on the weekend. The weight difference to the old lead acid is amazing. Just so long as it doesn’t decide to spontaneously combust one day and turn me into a charred cinder, I’ll be happy.

If somebody still wants to go for the conventional AGM-battery, this might be an alternative. Same size, Ah and CCA as Yuasa but not as expensive.
I've installed it myself and it works fine so far Smile

How long ago did you install the Marelli-battery?

Only one year ago, so time will show how durable it is... Smile

I bought two and a half years ago a battery from EXIDE, ETX20CH-BS, 230A/EN - now it's struggling...

The Marelli has 270 CCA.

Comes this battery with separate aciid-pack?

No, it was sealed when I bought it. However, I made phone calls around to find it, and it could be that it was filled by the dealer while i was driving there to pick it up, - probably not.

Yes it has 270 CCA, same as Yuasa.
No problem with starting power so far.
I've also done the startus interruptus fix, which of course helps in that regard...

Anyway - the Marelli is an alternative for me, if the Exide get worse. It's alsways good to know an alternative. I like these type of batteries, because the recycling is really good.

I have done the starter interruptus - fix a few years ago. Very good.
