OEM battery is 35 AmpHr - much less than that, and there are bound to be issues …

The 2.2 has a larger capacity - but, as far as I am aware, all the Petrol versions have a 35 AmpHour unit ...

Whatever the actual capacity is - it's just about as small as Honda could get away with - hence an even smaller capacity unit will have issues ...

In fact, I understand that the unit the 'OP' referred to, only has enough juice to try to start the engine 8 times or so ! ...
