    I don't think you need to use RECON mode. Normal is correct and I botched a battery thinking it needed reconditioning.

    This kind of sums up most of his threads.

    Anytime I ever read anything in life I don't believe it unless it references some sort of reputable source and a random stranger on the internet telling me to go for it does not constitute a reputable reference. I was hoping someone would point me to some sort of online chemical paper or published journal outlining the control groups and testing results for this scenario. Or simply telling me you've been working with car batteries for 20 years would have also sufficed.

    I didn't get what I needed so I compiled all the advice together as best I could and took the safest route. I don't think that was a bad idea, you can't fault me for that.

    The safest route was to delay warming and charging your battery? While you thought it might have been in a low state of charge and it was - 30?

    I don't think you were reading the same posts as me. But it's no biggie. Worst case the battery is damaged, but new ones are readily available and easy to obtain.

    Some people experienced the battery charging advice differently.
    It happens. Justin taught me that.

    Might I interest you in the Battery University?
    Course 101 When was the battery invested.

    What if say, a member posts 5 paragraphs of text about how their best friend's uncle's cousin who works at Canadian Tire says to go charge the battery in warm environment.

    I think we all agree that the more long winded one's post is, the more reputable the content.

    Point you to a paper?

    Pretty sure most of us are doubtful you know how to read...

    You just came on here looking for yes men to enable your stupidity as per usual. I’d say quit Internet forums, but man it is entertaining to hear about the train wreck that is your day to day life.

    Clearly my Google keyboard knows I talk about investing and not inventing.
