Dead Battery

Question

Got back from holiday and have not driven the celica for almost 4 weeks. Before this there has been some slow starting up issues but this time before even cranking it i checked with the multimeter and the battery was at 7.3volts. Dead

So need a new battery and 2 are showing. A 005 and a 158. The 158 seems smaller in size.

Should i just stick with the 005 type that im currently using?

Someone needs to fix the forums its just too damn slow

Used to have the Old bigger battery but when I was due for a change, I picked the slim version and haven't got any issue at all. Every time I go for Holiday now for a month or more. I always disconnect the Negative terminal and never had a dead battery at all.

for those who need a new battery for a facelift, the 158 code cross references to  a type 053 and is identical in size, capacity and CCA.  Not sure why two different codes for the same type of battery, but there we go - also, lots of places cost the 158 higher than the 053, which is funny considering the old varta I pulled out had both numbers on it indicating it was indeed, exactly the same.

 

Now got a new Yuasa YBX3053 on it and boy does it crank fast now
