The best option is:
VARTA BLUE DYNAMIC
570 412 063.....70ah
because of dimensions 261 175 220
because varta is standard battery from honda factory in uk in honda diesel
because of price/power ratio
The physical dimensions are almost identical on the Sønnak versus the Varta BD. It only differs with 9 mm on the lenght and +- 2mm's in the two other directions!
Furthermore it is hard to find a local supplier around here of the Varta's, and also I think they are noticeable more expensive than the Sønnak's, and the Superline series by Sønnak are by no means bad batteries. Far from it.
Will keep you posted in how I proceed!
If you look picture from -notso- you will see thet there is very very small space from left to the right of bosch s6 battery and very near to the black plastics on left side and it is because of lenght of battery.Varta is only 261 mm and thet is ideal dimension.
Varta is only 60 euro,and Sonnak from your link is 88 euro.
Starting power for Varta is 630A and for Sonnak 540A.
We all wait for your proceed,just go for it.
Did you order honda civic diesel battery holder?????
First you must order battery holder from honda,then when you wait for holder you will find on internet shop varta battery.No - not yet mate.
I didn't make any progress in my battery project today.
The (tyre) shop with the Varta batteries I mentioned earlier today didn't stock/sell them anymore although their website was full of them - only some cheapo Hankook batteries, so that was a big disappointment. They just made me waste my time - for nothing. So no I have no idea where to get hold of a Varta battery...
I might have to go for another brand (Sønnak) anyway now.
I'll keep you posted.
Wrong - I don't have to order the Diesel version battery holder, I just tell them to "borrow" one from the cars in the showroom. [smilie=cheeky-grin:[smilie=tongue.gif]First you must order battery holder from honda,then when you wait for holder you will find on internet shop varta battery.
Here is what i suggest you should do.
Use the original battery holder.
Cut down the sidewalls of the original black plastic tray containing the battery.
Place a rubbermat on top of the black plastic tray. I used one of those rubbermats designed for protecting your knees when working in the garden etc. The bottom was cut to fit the tray and the top to fit the battery. It works fine.
Buy a nice tie down. It will make it look a lot more professional than the one i used from the diesel.
Remember to place the bolts in their holes before placing the battery, there is no room for placing them afterwards.
You will have to cut a little in the black plastic surrounding the positive terminal.
Absolutely NOT - a larger battery simply has more storage capacity - the 'running' Volts and Amps delivered are exactly the same ...If I fit a battery more then or less then 74ah, that is suggested in the Honda Specs, will it do any harm to my spaceship electronics?
When your battery holder for diesel will be on your honda?You know what?
The 70 ah Sønnak almost looked small down there.
It was more room for it than I actually was expecting, especially on the hight, it seems.
There was no problem whatsoever space wice.
Wonder why Honda didn't install a battery like this in the 1.8 in the first place?...
Did you experience that your headlights and instrumentlights suddenly was brighter? And the motor starts like it had electroconvulsive therapy
