Ordered PC680 yesterday from Demontweeks, arrived today, 11 ish. Standard delivery. That’s Tayna level of delivery time, so looking good so far.

Recommendation for Batteries on the Web as a supplier of the Banner battery.

They and Tanya will deliver. Caterham Parts stock them but won't.

Just to add to your table, I use a PC545 which quotes 460cca. Just fitted my third one, previous 2 having lasted 9 years each- pretty good for a small 13ah unit. Relocated mine down by the starter motor thus shortening the cable runs

David,

Can you post up a pic of the relocated position / install?

Cheers

Well impressed with Tayna, I ordered a Banner 53030 on 13th and it's here (which is to say nearby France) collected by me on 16th. Acid filled not dry to boot.

This has most definitely been discussed before, but what is the general consensus on lithium battery’s to replace the banner battery that has died in my R400K.

I don't think that there is any consensus because there haven't been enough reports on particular makes and models. Probably the best single thread, and I'm trying to document mass and price and energy storage etc over there.

But I'm totally convinced that they're worth considering.

I think use case has a lot to do with it. No one spec does it all.

Thanks.

There must be more experiences out there with lithium batteries in Sevens...
