You dont have to go for the small pole battery again I used a 55amp Opel battery big pole,I had to adjust the lip on the edge slightly to fit the tray. You have to change the pole connectors on the leads for the big poles but thats not a problem, I have pics of the job will trow it up later....

Optima yellow top, be the best you could get. pricey though at about 200 euro!
