The cold weather has claimed another victim… The battery in Bertie.

Went to Halfords armed with measurements and suggestion from various forums and came out with a HB075, which was about 2mm wider than the hole in the boot floor. However, the 075 seemed to be the battery of choice so I gave it a go.

What can I say, perfect fit, once in, a bit of a shove and it’s just snug against the sides!
Lower profile, higher capacity and a much higher current handling, getting on for double the old battery.

Anyway, if you have a mini with a dead battery and need one in a hurry get one of the Halfords 075, if your not in a hurry get one from somewhere else with the same measurements.
