    Good morning fellow Copen fans. Hope all is good?

    I have some sad news to report, that following a long illness Buzz's battery has finally passed away :(

    The deceased was a Varta Asia A14. Has any other member had experience of replacing this battery? Should I go for the same brand or have we got any good things to say about other brands?

    Cheers!

    Phill and Buzz.

    Hello PhilandLin,

    I hope this battery problem does not affect you so much and did not waste Eastern time ;)
    I replace my battery some monthes ago, and choose that one
    VARTA : 5401260333132
    I do not use my car every day, but never I had problem to start it after even some weeks without running. The battery lenght is lower, other dimensions perfectly match. Capacity is (a bit) higher - 40 Ah compared to 36 Ah for the original one :p
    Please inform us about the choice you did :)
