After 7.5 years of faithful service I finally had a stutter in cranking over the car. That being said its been dang cold here lately.
Anyone else still on the stock battery?

Still on my original too. Purchased Dec 2005, now over 7 years old! It cranks a little slow if I let it sit for a couple of days but it's been a trooper. Come replacement time, if I can find another of the same brand for <$150 I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I'm on my second one. Factory battery lasted about 3-4 years before I noticed sluggish cranking. I replaced it with some cheapo brand and it's been fine. I was surprised when I left it sitting for almost the entire month of October while I was in training and it fired right up when I got back.
I'm thinking about getting a smaller Braille unit if I can justify the cost when this one dies.
