I have always wondered what the difference between the 096 battery and 100 battery is

when checking my car over it seems i have halfords 5 year warrenty 096 battery

halfords dont do 100 batteries which is apparentely the one for my car (2.0hdi)

anyway on ebay some ads specify that 096 and 100 are the same.

the bosch 096 is s5 008 and the bosch 100 is s5 007 so obviousely not the same

does anyone have any idea as i cant find anything on the web

To all intents and purposes they ARE the same its most likely dimensions that are different there are some cars that need a specific battery where others can use many different ones there are probably 100 different sizes and terminal layouts even though you could do them all with 10 batteries :)

Some cars NEED the correct battery dimensions to fit the tray etc thats the main reason for so many variations my espace has a much bigger battery than it should have because i had it and it fits :)

the 096 does fit and it seems you can get higher cranking from a 096 battery

just wondered why they mark them as the same when there slightly different
