Anywhere online to buy batteries?

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' at netrider.net.au started by Spud Gun, Oct 23, 2007.

  1. Based on another thread https://netrider.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=44570 I require a new battery. Is there a website that anyone knows of where I can pick up a new one at a reasonable price? Where is the best place to buy a bike battery?

  3. I just bought one from JJ Batteries in Melbourne. $100 for the battery and shipping to Sydney (inc GST). I'll let you know if I get it, and if its decent. Very reasonable shipping costs.

  13. I bought a battery there two weeks ago. They seemed to be reasonably priced.

    But I did have a few problems. Apparently the battery they identified as specific to my bike is no longer made and although they identified equivalents that were meant to be identical they were a gnat's whisker too wide to fit into my frame. We eventually sorted it but it took a few goes.

    That said they were happy to recredit and gave me the option of either walking or trying again. We tried again but it was a case of third time lucky.

    I saw some batteries on ebay for around the same prices advertised as suitable for my bike and from this experience I now know they would not have fitted in my frame. And it is easier to return to a store which is down the road than to an online dealer.

    Guess the moral is size does count.
