    Purchased a huskie battery from the local TSC that won't hold a charge, it was 1 day past the 6 month warranty and he won't make it good. He said that Excide doesn't recommend using a maintenance 1.5 amp to keep it charged when not using. What do all you do? Any help is deeply appreciated, thanks

    If it's a cold weather problem only, you may have to bring it inside.

    Yep batteries are funny like that my OEM went 6 years no charger. Bought an auto zone went 2 years. Got a 1/2 price lawn mower battery at Lowes 9 years still going though I do hit it with a charge in the spring now. With the new smart chargers 1.5 is high they go by whats needed and conditions including outside and internal temp. Smart 3.3 is a full hit and it slows as it gets near to full. It trickles in the tenths .1-.2 Will shut off when full then trickle its not constant
