    Default Maxim Batteries

    Not another battery thread 🤦🏼

    Anyone have any experience with Maxim batteries? I need 2 new batteries for my Companion, and I can get these for R1650 each.

    Can't find anything on them, so coming to the source of all things battery related...

    When I needed to replace my Jettas battery is did some searching and they seemed to be very good. Good aftersales service. Good warrantee. Been in the Jetta now for two years and haven't skipped a beat yet.

    Been very impressed with their service, just wondering about the quality of their deep cycle batteries

    Would not touch them. We stocked them for resale. Poor service, support, and backup. Not a once off - time and time again . Eventually had to give customers another brand. Cost us big time - "skoolgeld"!

    Thing is... They're not much cheaper than other options... Just very convenient
