    Default Vectra Elite 2.2 (2006) - Battery help needed

    Hi,
    Would the following battery be ok for my Elite 2.2.
    I'm just a bit concerned about the Ah figure as my stock battery is 66Ah and this one is 74Ah. Would that cause any problems?

    The physical dimensions are the same as the stock one.

    Bosch S4 008
    Capacity - 74Ah
    CCA (EN) - 680A
    278L x 175W x 190H

    ECP have got 15% off batteries online so it would only cost £70 delivered.

    Thanks

    As long as it's 12v, the posts are in the right place and the AH rating is at least the minimum required for the car then it's fine. The AH (Amp Hour) rating is just the maximum amount of current in AMPs it can cope with and the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) is the maximum amps it can give on cold start so the more the better for both.
