  1. Dear Sirs,
    My Ford KA Haynes manual says a silver-calcium maintenance-free battery should only be used for my 2005 1.3i KA. Are the batteries you recommend of this type?
    Thanks

    • Dear Sir,
      Silver-Calcium batteries are specific to Ford original batteries available at authorized service stations. Batteries listed above are made in a slightly different technology but according to Bosch, Varta and Exide catalogs, they are suitable for Ford KA vehicles.
