Thread: Replacement battery advice

  1. #1

    Default Replacement battery advice

    Hello.

    My battery has died totally during storage even whilst on a Ctek charger. I wasnt prepared for this and need to move it on Wednesday. Ive had a look on the forum and seen
    31500-SV2-001HE-SV2-001HEmentioned as the original replacement (mines a manual 3.0) and to buy direct from Honda.

    Is this still the correct part and do you think Id be able to get one for Wednesday if I order it tomorrow.

    If not, can anyone give me the detail of a currently available alternative Id be able to get quickly.

    Many thanks

    Phil

    no doubt people will disagree, but the lead acid battery tech pretty much hasn't changed for a car since the car began!

    so as long as it's 005L spec, just buy one from the shop that has it in stock as you are in a rush!!!! local motor factor, battery specialist, or halfords (if you are desperate....) most come with a 3 year guarantee anyway

    not recommending this, just a quick google search example that shows the critical bits, the basic size and the terminal layout

    I'm happy to recommend Tayna, I've bought batteries from them, cheaper than Halfords and delivered to your door.
    Last battery change for the NSX was from a Honda dealer, price OK [Honda Happiness?] and with excellent forum recommendations.
    I went for the battery for an Auto [though mine's a manual] as it fits and has a greater capacity.

    Hi Jonathan

    When you say just buy one, do you mean to just trust the equivalent they suggest ? I’m concerned I’d end up something that wouldn’t fit

    ah, i forgot the epic Pride battery saga!!!!


    everyone suggests the 005L as that's the battery size that matches oem sizing/layout/spec.... i'm sure if you went to honda and got the battery, whoever the manufacturer is that actually makes it will list it un-honda-branded as a 005L battery

    they are all a muchness, tho you can find them with a slightly higher Ah, and CCA ratings....... but as supply and demand (more delivery time) is against you, its a case of who has got what!

    For MT, 31500-SV2-011HE
    It's now 101 RRP. Used to be much cheaper than that.
    12V 65AH
    BCI 525, DIN 250 or uprated by now as the manufature/base model changes over the years and the technology advances.
    CCA 520A (EN) or above.

    aka 70D23L-MF for MT model.

    Check with your local Honda garage for the delivery schedule.
    Or, just pick up the equivalent from the above link.
    If visiting Halford, look for Yuasa HSB005. Can't go wrong with Yuasa.

    As long as the battery physically fits, has the same terminal configuration as the OEM one, and has the same Voltage (!), & at least the same CCA, RC & AH ratings as the current OEM one, then it will be fine.

    I have bought a Bosch SM Mega Power Silver battery for my daily driver, but there isn't an NSX-sized battery available.

    In the UK Halfords will get the battery to the store of your choosing next day if not in stock already.
