About two months ago I installed a new battery in my pickup, (which I haven't driven since). The other day I got somehing off the seat & noticed a dim dome light. Of course the starter was too. Upon putting the battery charger on it, the indicator needle stayed on "charged". I left the charger on for about 20 minutes & needle didn't move. I disconnected positive terminal, put charger back on and after about 20 seconds the meter dropped down to the charging position, (50 amp boost charger). I then set it at 2 amps & let it charge up slowly. I have not gotten back to it/hooked battety back up.
Is that initial charging situation normal? Also, how long should a battery maintain enough juice to start a seldom driven vehicle?
