The ratio between the values of current cold scroll to the charging capacity is about 65-8.
You can still see the German battery marked in accordance with regional standards DIN new products have a European mark. Old GOST DIN and American standards starting current was determined using different methodologies and had different values.
Here is a table for conversion values
As we can see the capacity is generally not indicated. Please note that the value of the current of cold scrolling is determined by other than us techniques.
As the count mentioned above.
An important designation which must be indicated date of issue. If the vendor when you marker fills in the blank field on the label and it happens supposedly in your interest longer warranty is a reason to be suspicious to think about what the result will be the lifespan of a car battery.
