    Tried to start after soccer training last night, nothing dead. Got a jump to get home parked it and same thing this morning. Has a century battery was fitted Dec 2016. Nearly 3 years sounds about right I think, what are you guys using?

    We got around 3 years too IIRC John mate from a Century in our diesel family wagon, not unhappy with that either.
    Expensively upgraded to an Optima Yellow D27 pair for more longevity and fast charge now as I’ve always been super impressed with them on other setups.
    We do seem to be getting really good reliability so far out of Bond Batteries on some work utes at nearly half the Optima price too I believe.
    The Legends here have kindly recommended one day trying ‘CAT’ batteries direct from a factory outlet too, there’s one in Victoria mate just off the WRingRoad I believe?

    With a new vehicle, batteries seem to last 4 to 5 years. Buy a new battery and you are lucky to get 3 years. Now why would that be?

    New alternator charging at its optimum over and older alternator, new starter motor not drawing as much current as an older starter would. I assume this would impact on battery condition to some level.

    Aren't the optima ones a deep cycle battery?

    I've only got the winch and lights running to the cranker and they're only on with the engine.

    How many times you start and stop the engine, ambient temperature, headlights and wipers on and what accessories you use during the trip are all contributing factors to battery life, especially on short trips. Most of the energy used for cranking the engine should be replenished within minutes of starting if the alternator / regulator are in good working order.

    How does one check the alternator?
