After this latest cold snap my stock battery has finally died.

Anyone up for a group buy for something a bit more heavy duty like an Odyssey, Optima, etc?

Just a note Dave, my battery was completely dead and not taking charge at all from my Halfords charger, thought it was a gonner!!! Bought a CTEK charger and hey presto 8 hours later it had fully charged, great peice of kit and you can leave your battery on trickle over winter.
Having said that Im still interested in a GEL Optima or the like as im relocating mine to inside the cabin.

i'd be up for this, how long do these batteries last with the car sat unused?

i get about 2 1/2 - 3 wks before im charging mine again!
