It may be wasteful and foolish but when the time comes that I have a battery that didn't do as expected (goes dead once, cranks really slow, etc.) and I determine it's not artificial, as in dirty cable ends, I start looking to replace it. I have never had the experience of bringing one back to life enough that I trust it. On my daily drivers I usually get about three to four years out of a battery. I have two garden tractor batteries, one is five years old and still starts the mower it's on. The other one is only a year old and won't hold a charge. It's on a tiller, I'll jump it and run it for an hour or so and it will start back up on it's own, but over night it goes down (cables disconnected).

At our fire house we sometimes get another year or so out of a battery by draining the acid out and putting new in. Same old story though, once it's had issues it's never the same.

Bought a new harley in 2002 and had to replace the battery in spring of 2012. Ten years on a bike battery is pretty darn good.

The car battery is nothing more than a test. I will be putting it in the car tomorrow and testing to see if it will crank it up. If so then great. I may just need it in the future if i find myself in a pinch.
