Cheap leisure batteries

I'm after 3 or 4 110 AMP leisure batteries and don't really fancy paying the £150 or so Halfords are charging at the moment! Can anyone recommend a cheap supplier in the Solent area? I had a look on ebay and theres a company on there supplying them for less than £60 a pop, with a 4 year guarantee, but it's collection only from up North :-(

You should be able to get proper marine ones (Numax in our case) for around 90 quid inc vat, I would expect that to include delivery for 3 or 4.

Or get a courier to quote for collecting them from the eBayer? I think TNT are ok with batts.

They replaced them with "orange juice" ones which were fine, and didn't seem surprised when we turned up with our conkers hanging out of our trowsers, so they must have has a faulty batch.
