Dammit! Need a battery!
Well I had an 'interesting' occurrence last night, on the way home (country road, about 20 mins to drive it) i came across a car that had rolled 3/4 times, and was resting on its side.
After pulling the driver out (who was drunk i might add), and checking that the car wasnt leaking fuel or anything, i look back into the car and see exactly what i was hoping i wouldnt - a baby seat. Finally got it out of the driver that there was noone else in the car (thankyou god!), and went back and called the police and an ambulance, and put the hazards and driving lights on just to make the scene a bit more visible.
Anyway point of the story - after doing all that and leaving the car for about an hour without starting it (should have remembered to do it i know), the battery was dead, completely gone. So, does anyone have any recommendations of a brand to get for the next one - the last one was a 'maintainence free' one, it didnt give me any trouble (until last night) but Ive heard they arent very reliable/dont last long?
Only thing apart from normal stuff it'll have to power is my driving lights.
Also, how hard is it to change the connectors? Mine are looking a bit raggy, so I thought Id change them over as well, but it looks like I'm going to need to get under the car for one of them?
