Narrow Post 054 Car Battery developments
I am now old enough to remember when the first popular cars were imported into the UK. Of course, cars were still manufactured in the UK in those days. Buying anything from a Rolls Royce to the tiny Austin A35 cars, Consequently, and they were all made here in the UK.
Britains were loyal car buyers in those days! The car manufacturing sector was booming. Naturally, this car growth boom also attracted parts companies. So, there were many engineering firms that serviced the car industry.
Unfortunately. battery companies were a little slow to start up. Most car batteries were still the old black rubber casing type. Then came the front wheel drive cars. Of course, the first minis that were introduced.Likewise, had to have their batteries fitted in the boot of the car. Because the car was a front wheel drive ! There was no room in the engine compartment for a battery to be fitted.
Car Battery industry on the move
Correspondingly, the battery industry was beginning to change. Batteries were changing shape and were made of different materials. Plastic casings were the becoming new norm.
Now enter the imported cars.
Furthermore, working class man here in the UK. Were beginning to be able to afford to buy a car for the first time. Continental car makers saw the UK as a great new market. Companies such as Datsun, Renault and Sunbeam Talbot were becoming common sites on our roads. With this brought different battery types, including size and shape.
Many of these batteries were made in Japan and were narrow in width with narrow battery posts. I remember the fact that I had never seen anything like this before. So,replacement batteries were difficult to get for some of these obscure cars.
The battery in question turned out to be a common part number to us in the UK, the Narrow Post 054 Car Battery. This Car Battery fits many of our modern cars. It can
be found on cars such as the Hyundai such as the i10 petrol model.
The narrow post Car Battery also fits many Nissan Micra petrol models.
Many Proton and Suzuki smaller car models are fitted with the Narrow Post 054 Car Battery. The Daihatsu car models are almost all fitted with “thin posts Battery”, making this battery a major stocking item for BatteriesOnTheWeb.
Finally, the makes that are recommended are the ApolloPower batteries and Banner battery range and are available to be sent out online to most UK post codes.
