Australia 2008 Freelander 2 TD4 SE Auto Nazca Sand

“All batteries are imported. Have noticed with various companies for any product there is a lot of stock shortage. Maybe a combination of cutting back on inventory & or difficulty in getting products imported.“

Not only that, some companies are not even shipping interstate at the moment! 2008 Freelander 2 (Nazca Sand) SE TD4 Auto

Hey mate, where did you get your Varta battery?

Struggling to find anywhere in Australia with a Freelander compatible battery in stock, I don't know if that is the norm or if it is COVID shortage related?


They do have the F19 in stock by the look of it.

Varta F19 works for me but I dont have Start/Stop in my SD4.
The F21 is for those of you with Start /Stop

They are both the same size 315x175x190


F19 for me too... I bought mine from Tayna in January 2019:

F19 Varta Silver Dynamic Car Battery 85Ah 1 £89.97
P&P £7.98
TOTAL £97.96

Current Tayna price is £86.50 plus £7.97 shipping.

just had my F18 delivered - after ordering it from Battery Megastore at 2pm yesterday - brilliant service! Cost £91.59 all in.
i went for them rather than Tayna as they seem to have their warranty procedure much more sorted. After 6 months Tayna told me that the cost of shipment for a warranty claim would be down to me to get it back to them. Megastore say they will pay for the courier as long as i send a test report on the battery.
Local indy price to supply and fit Land Rover brand £186 - and that is for a 700a 80ah whereasF18 is 800a.85ah.

now just to fit it and all should be well - hopefully. Smile Defender County Station Wagon 2013 Orkney Grey

Agree with you with Tayna's warranty process. I had to pay return postage on Varta battery when faulty after 2 years (4 year warranty) and they refused to refund even after confirming fault. Wouldn't use again. Andy

United Kingdom 2011 Freelander 2 TD4 HSE Manual Bali Blue

I opened a trade account at Halfords . Which is easy to do , any trade is acceptable. Got their own brand AGM battery (stop/start type) 80amp , which is actually made by Yuasa , 5 years warranty for £113-60. Fit it yourself as only the windows needs resetting. Stop start working instantly.

It currently has the original battery on it so its done well.
