The Battery provided to me in with the car is 60 Din (Ref C20 Capacity AH : 60, Charging Current A : 4)

I’m looking to change my battery as its old and giving issues.

The one which I want to go for is Exide EpiQ which has a Higher Capacity (Ref Capacity - 68, Charging Current A : 4.7)

Will this battery work on my car? Will it damage any electrical circuits or alternator in my car?

Does having a higher capacity mean it is sending higher amps to my car?


As far as the charging circuit and alternator, this battery shouldn't cause your car any issues.

Your potential issue with getting a battery of a different size is its physical size and how the posts are situated on the battery itself. As long as it will physically fit into the battery box dimensions without interfering with anything and the posts are in the right location (and are the right type of posts), there shouldn't be an issue.

  • Thank you for the prompt reply. I’m confused about 1 thing. What is charging current. If both the battery’s have Ref Capacity - 68, But 1 battery has a Charging current of 4A and the Other has a Charging Current of 4.7 A Does that mean the 2nd battery which has a higher charging current will take longer time to charge Or The duration taken by both the batteries to charge from 0 - 100 % would be same. It’s confusing about that – Mohur Jun 13 '20 at 16:01
