The 9 year old OE battery has survived the last two months cccc-cold spell without any hint of struggling . Now I'm curious how long it will last. I have had good luck with reviving a few batteries with a BatteryMinder pulse charger. So last month I put a PowerPulse PP-12-L 12V on the battery. It provides a constant pulse similar to the BatteryMinder pulse charger that has worked well for me. The difference is that the PowerPulse uses the battery itself to provide the current to power the pulsing. I put the PowerPulse unit on and then a storm hit and the car sat for 4 days before I started it again. I wondered if the drain from the PowerPulse unit would drain the battery, but it started the Kiz on a 20 degree day like a 40-50 degree day,

OE battery lasted 5 years. Interstate replacement lasted 3 years. Those -50 degree days earlier this year killed it. Hopefully the new one does better.
