Re: Car battery, where? How much?

last year I bought an Exide Premium Carbon Boost from autobatterienbilliger.de via Ebay which is supposed to charge more quickly and it's been great so far. the car sat in a cold parking garage for six weeks over xmas and started up no problem. Price was 87 euros with free postage.
So my battery lasted less than three years. It got discharged a couple of times by being left a long time connected to the car and now won't start the car even 24 hours after charging.

This makes me think they may be Chinese fakes! Honest Chinese Hahn batteries are that price in Germany. Has anyone tried those? Realistically I will probably only start the bike a few times and in good weather.
The problem is that battery life is a function of what the ambient conditions (and SOC) are when/where you store them.

It's a bother to remove the batt for storage in a warm area, so when it's nice weather and you think "I'll go for a spin", the battery says "No".
