I bought a similar Exide battery (069SE) from Tayna in 2008, and it lasted for six years. (The warrantee was for three years.) This time I bought the nearest equivalent, and it was even slightly cheaper! The old battery is now in semi-retirement powering an electric fence. One thing I would point out is that the battery isn't a sealed design, so it will need topping up with de-ionised water every so often.

What a fantastic service, I ordered on Thursday morning and it arrived Friday morning the perfect fit for my MGB roadster, even better than the original as the carry handle helped to situate the battery more easily. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Battery profile as per original MG specification. I.e. terminal posts are within the overall footprint of case and do not stand proud like every other modern 069's seem to be produced (and which virtually every other retailer supplies - regardless of the image they depict). Proud terminal posts increase the overall height of the battery and place the positive terminal worrying close to the classis. Do yourself and the MGB fraternity a favour and purchase a 069RE Exide Excell Car Battery (EX69) to ensure this model of battery casing remains in production. Also if it helps this is exactly the same battery casing as the Halford's 069 of pre 2004.
