Kushan,

GS was a very good battery few years back, that was original Japanese made battery, but I think what is available in the market is not Japanese. Check before you buy same the country of origin.

'NRX",

I have not used this battery nor any of my known friends.

Please note I found this about the said battery on the Web.

market”

manufacturing plant in South Asia is going to launch the premium

brand of its automotive range of batteries, “GLOBATT”.

is that Maintenance free batteries are better than others?

'osanda19',

The lifetime of the battery depends on your Vehicle charging system. If Alternator over charges, lead acid or maintenance free battery too will get effected. I know one Battery Importer imported few thousands of batteries from Singapore.

I personally visited that battery factory on be half of that importer and discussed about complains of returns. They did manufacture maintenance free batteries. Srilankan importer did not import that due to high cost.

Almost all complains were from overcharging batteries our srlankan users ran the vehicles without checking the battery water then batteries get damaged.

Later that importer discontinued the imports because he found returns were eating in to his profits as the manufacture did not give replacements for returns due to over charge.

Uditha88,

If I am not mistaken this GS was the first battery made in Japan more than 100 years ago.

I have used original Japanese made GS battery it was 6 volts system in my father's 1950 model car. Skoda for more than 5years. This Battery was originaly imported by M/s, Colombo Trades at colombo 02. Later I converted that car to 12 volts in 1970. back again I used GS Japanese new 12 volts battery. Until I sold that car in 1980 for rupees 2000.00 I had that battery it lasted all most 10 years due to small charger connected in the nights.

There after all Japanese vehicles from 1988 till 2004, I had Exide, which gives a service for me more than treble the guarantee.

Because I use a small charger in the night and fill up battery water in regular intervels.

Even Malaysian GS or any battery if you look after with battery water at correct intervels, connect a small battery charger, in the night which will give 1 amp maximum, you can extend battery time some more. Charger cost will be around Rupees 1000.00.

Your car battery charging voltage shoud not go more than 14.5 volts maximum.

Maintaining proper battery water level & keep car driving without keep without running will save ur battery.

My idea is if your vehicle's alternator is working properly, there's no need for charging the battery by other devices.

techlove,

You can buy a battery charger from Robert Agencies at Reclamation Road Colombo 011 Tel:2421009/2421008/2421017/2421053/2421032.

They have web site. www.robertagencies.com Most suitable one for you is according to their web site is 5 amps one. But this can charge your battery in about in 4 hours full, there fore you have to have a timer switch which they have for rupees 2000.00. which can be fixed to the home plug. Battery charger plug will be fixed to the timer switch.

I build my own chargers, I buy a 230/240 Volts step down to 12 Volts AC-2amp Transformer with a full wave bridge rectifier, 1000UF Capiciter 50 Volts and the wires with battery clips mount same to a old computer power supply box fix same to your garage wall connect the clips to the battery, leave it over night.IF you want you can incorporate a Ampere meter for that box also.

To minimize the connecting clips to the battery by opening bonnet of your car, you can have a Cigaret lighter socket fitted on some hidden place so that will not be seen be seen and connect your battery charger leads to the cigaret lighter adapter.

Any Radio/TV technician will build for you if unable contact me. I will help you to do same.

You can Email me on <[email protected]><[email protected]>
