    AFAIK BSX Powerdrive (UK) were bought out by Exide a few years ago and are no longer available although an Exide "equivalent" is [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    I thought the Bopal incident was caused by a chemical factory owned by Union Carbide.

    Roger, If you want flooded batteries that last forever, take a look at http://www.rollsbattery.com/ . They're stocked by http://www.barden-uk.com/. They are discounting them till the end of September. I'm planning on fitting 4 x 27HT90 as the current batteries are on their last legs.

    Bhopal, not Bopal (different place) and yes it was Union Carbide.

    i have been in contact with barden & battery megastore
    i dont think i can justify the trojan 27tmh @ 524.97 for 3 batteries + a starter battery.
    i am concidering the megastore ex31 x 4 @ a more reasonable 359.98 total.
    as my existing batteries have done almost 9 yrs & similar quality as the ex31s
