I get about 12 miles to a charge off one Yuasa 038 battery, you can get them for around £40?

What type of terminals have you got on your battery. They are different to the car battery batteries. How do you connect yours to the battery, or have I been looking at the wrong battery  :-\

Its a normal car battery and therefore has normal car battery  terminals. I posted about it earlier here http://c5alive.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2142.0

How far can you discharge your battery because I know you can't discharge a car battery to far and how long have you had it

I've always stopped using a battery when I got a beep from the POD, I don't know what voltage this is at though. I tend to replace each battery every 6 months or so as I find that, with the mileage I do, the range starts to drop after about 6 months,
