I couldn't get the Hankook battery, about 18 months ago, so I bought a Yuasa battery from Batterymegastore, and it has been good so far. I have a DHSE but I have to admit that it doesn't get used very much. It does sit around for a couple of weeks at a time but it always starts without fail, first time.

I think, that if you have a diesel, it is really important to make sure that the heater plugs are in good order. If my car takes a few turns to start then the first thing that I get a contact that I have, is to check the heater plugs and replace anything that doesn't look 100 per cent. Not having the heater plugs working well is the surest way to kill the battery, as you have to start cranking the engine. It will inevitably start but the battery power will be reduced, and will probably be not recover to full charge each time the car struggles to start.

The Yuasa is more expensive than the Hankook but it is 925CCA. Here is the description for anyone who is interested:
Yuasa YBX3642 12V 110Ah 925A Super Heavy Duty SMF Commercial Vehicle Battery.
