    Question Battery EN value?

    I have to replace my battery because it has died yesterday.

    I want to replace it with one of the Varta Silverline batteries

    http://www.varta-automotive.com/inde...linetype=19140

    I want to replace with a high capacity (77Ah), but this has also a high EN value.
    Does this EN value of 780 harm the car's system?

    Or is it better to replace it with a 74 Ah with EN 750?

    What difference does 30 EN make?

    A higher capacity battery will not harm the car, it will give you additional reserve for difficult starting situations.

    CCA Cold Cranking Amperage the amount of output from the battery. Higher the CCA the better the battery.

    Dont know what EN is?

    EN is according to the Varta website the same as CCA. Does a higher CCA possibly harm the car's systems?

    Nope, just a better quality battery, it will produce more power on demand.

    The only thing that would damage a cars electrical systems if the alternator's regulator packs in.
