    Generally the battery in Punto lasts for 2 yrs minimum. Anything more is a bonus. The exide battery in my Punto is running for the past 31 months.

    OEM Exide battery knows when the battery warranty is over. It dies as soon as possible after the battery warranty ends! Praise planned obsolescence to force customers to buy new stuff. Now that I have mentioned about planned obsolescence, see this movie to know how the corporations had been cheating their customers with a product intentionally engineered to fail soon: .

    Thanks for your quick response. It is nice to understand the facts from here. I was totally clueless 'why this happened?' especially since run for quite good KMs so far. Average 68Kms/day (45kms in 22 months:finger:) .

    Which brand is better Exide or Ameron?

    IMHO, Amaron is better than Exide not from functional point but purely from warranty point of view. Its a different thing that Exide batteries do show signs of strains after the warranty period surprisingly.

    A couple of other options are Tata Green, SF Sonic. But I doubt if you get the battery applicable to Punto.

    I could see SF Sonic model matching for Punto in one of the portal.
