    My four year old Yuasa Professional battery has just displayed a slow dying cell on a test it still holds charge of 12.4v but its will become unpredictable . So Called up HH and ordered my 2nd new battery.

    Part number for the new Genuine Honda Battery as displayed , BTW this battery is made in Spain. I will fully charge the battery for 24 hours via the Honda Optimate battery charger before fitting it to my car.

    Thanks @Holdcroft Honda for the quick turnaround :Niceone:

    Out of curiousity CJ, with the likely costs involved in OEM Honda battery, did you consider a gel based battery from the likes of odyssey?

    Lets just say the OEM battery for the 7th Generation from the factory is underspec'd its 25 amps the above replacement is 48 amps, yes the gel battery would have a better rating but I went for the easy option. The price of the battery is sod all really.
