Long-term update: Our Honda S2000 gets Batt-Mobile battery replacement on the spot
Our Honda S2000’s battery wasn’t holding charge as well as it should, so when it finally died after just over a year, we called in our buddies at Batt-Mobile to replace the battery right down in our parking lot.
Batt-Mobile has spruced up their operation since the last time we used them, now offering a credit-card payment option and a larger selection of batteries. The company’s truck appeared within the hour, advertising their new phone number 800-START (800-78278).
This time we got an Amaron battery with 18 months warranty for Dhs 400 which included delivery and installation charges. Let’s see how long this one lasts.
