cheers for replies lads, the surface charge is interesting this would probably be why it showed 12.6v all day then when connected to the car dropped to 10.4?

new battery is on the cards just wanting to make sure it is only the battery and i dont have a drain on the car as well, most my journeys are short as well so i think ill get a ctek charger as well. im also away for 2-3 weeks at a time so it will be neccesary then i think.

As well as AGM you should also consider a higher CCA battery if your car sits outside all winter, cold weather has less effect on high cold crank amps batteries when you are starting up. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Doesn't need AGM. Standard battery is fine. Go for something 100Ah 900A.

Yuasa silver from Halfords gives a 5 year warranty. Thumbs Up 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Fairly sure the RRS diesel needs a 019 battery, although the little engine versions might be 017, not sure. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
