    A brand new battery if left unused will last for 2 months... Without charging...
    Kung bago battery mo once a month lang pwede na.. Start it for 30mins. Para ma full charge battery.. Or better buy ka nalang ng battery charger nasa 3k lang yun.. Then charge mo nalang pag gagamitin mo na... Mas tipid pa...

    You are all paranoid.

    My mazda bt50 (of course, diesel) does not get used for a month (i work 28 days on, 28 days off) so for a minimum of 30 days that i am away (28 days + 2 days travelling) it never gets used, started, charged, blah blah blah. Most of the time it is more than 30 days not used as i only start using it 4 days after i arrive and stop using it 5 days before i go. 1 click start pa din naman.

    Question: Mas madali ba mamamatay ang battery ng "seldom used" vs "always in use" na sasakyan. Or pareho lang sila pwede umabot or mag exceed sa given warranty period lifespan? Yung sasakyan ko kasi dati, nung madalas ko siya ginagamit, bumigay ang battery after a year pa ng warranty period. Pero nung nabawasan ang paggamit ko sa kanya, bumigay naman ang battery weeks lang right after ng warranty period.

    battery regardless of whatever nature has a limited life kahit lithuim ion pa yan kaya mag amaron ka na hehehehe but since were talking about lead acid battery mas madali siyang mamatay if in use rather than stored- due to electrical current or? ewan di ako electrical engineer eh baka mali din ako

    The moment you notice the engine turns sluggishly when you start, you're not doing it often enough.

    But seriuosly, get a cheapo voltmeter at any reputable store and see to it the battery retains 12.5 - 13.2 volts, and maintain it at that level, always

    Average battery life is 3 to 5 years depending on driving conditions. Primary enemy of battery is high temperature. Pero basta tapos na battery warranty, dapat lagi ka na naka-monitor. Use voltmeter (multi-tester) to check battery voltage.

    Madaming factors dyan eh. Same battery models ba ginamit mo? Ano manufacturing dates ng batteries? Baka old stock yung 2nd battery? If bibili ng battery, make sure fresh batch ang battery.

    Thanks sa replies. Sorry ts kung medyo na hijack ko ang thread mo. Btw, i'm using motolite gold eversince. Siguro nga hindi ko din kasi pinapansin yung manufacturing date ng battery. Sa tires ako talagang partikular pagdating sa manufacturing date. Thanks again. Btw, iyung amaron ba mas mahaba ang bigay na warranty kumpara sa motolite?
