2006 Z06 battery?


Hi all, what batteries have you fitted with no issues on fitment, retaining strap fitment etc? Currently mine has a tiny ultra lightweight jobbie fitted, currently does the job and cranks fine but always seems to take charge from the battery conditioner when its connected. Want to try and fit an OEM back on or better?

Apologies for another question and thanks in advance for your replies.

Keep it and keep it on the charger, it is running the security
system and fob detection systrm.

Re: 2006 Z06 battery?


When I got my C6 (non Z06) in 2012, it had a Varta RM 536 5465 that had been fitted by Stratstone Reading in late 2008. Since then, I have been buying this Optima Red Top from Tayna:

https://www.tayna.co.uk/car-batteries/optima/8035-255/

There is also the more expensive Optima Yellow top, that doesn't mind getting discharged (allegedly). As you can see, the red top spec is 730 CCA etc. Not sure if Z06s had a different/more powerful battery when new (suspect not)? What's the spec/numbers of your existing battery?

If you go for the Red Top from Tayna, check with them before buying that the battery will come sitting in a red plastic tray inside the box at the bottom. First one I ordered had that. I thought at first it was just packing material, but it fits in the battery tray on the car with the battery sitting in it. On the latest battery I ordered, it didn't have the tray, so I am using the original one.

Then again: Readit
