Bloody hell matey where've you been?
My 650/ ed2 thingy came with a dry cell battery ...didn't last me so long , it was yellow so could have been mobat or some German equivalent .
Since just bought a generic 14La 2 battery and it's been fine for the last 2 years ....
It's the same battery for all your listing except the 400

Not much help I know but it expands the question to a wider audience .

I tend to get only 2-3 years on a Yuasa lead acid battery on the 650. Eventually it will no longer hold charge, although you can get a few extra months by recharging it.
At the moment have fitted one of the yellow German dry cell Motobatt (SP?) ones Fossie mentioned, so will see how long that one lasts.
