EK9 Pre Facelift
I just got a Halfords one as I was in a pinch. Word of warning though, if you go the Euros/Halfords route, they stock UK size EK batteries. The EK9 has a smaller battery (only on width).

Well this is the second one I have used in the last 8 years or so. The car bursts into life on the key. With Covid
the car has not been run for weeks and still starts on the key. Cant say anymore really.

ha ha ok, thanks buddy, seems to be a good one, I am not too fussed about the weight saving from the oddessy pc680, I think most important is a strong decent battery.

shall I get the bigger s2000 one? looks like that has more capacity and crank and it's about the same size, the site you gave me is really competitive pricing. worth it for other forum members to use that!

Thank you very much

Its your call but I don't see how my car could start any quicker. I have cleaned the earths during lockdown which
made a good improvement too. and I thought well worth doing.

thank you, appreciate this. I am just thinking of a battery with bigger capacity to store more electricity.
that's a good idea to do during lockdown too :) I thought about getting an after market earth kit but probably worth doing what you did first.

The earths are so important on the wee Honda, well worth doing. Did not cost anything either for a good improvement in my case.
