    Aren't they only 50ah rated... i would have thought a 70ah would be better, although for a tenner it could be worth a try

    I had an Optima battery on my last car, it was only 50amp, the old saying "its not what you got, its how you use it" comes to mind. These Gel battery's are something else, brilliant battery's imo.
