    Battery works like a champ. I appreciate everyone's continued concern for my well being.
    Most of us here, when we hassle you, do it out of a genuine desire to assist, and not from a place of malice. Glad things are working well for you. I think maybe you have some new concepts on the "best practices" for this kind of situation in the future. Or maybe not.

    I know, I try to make jokes back. Most of what I post is satire, serious is boring. I do appreciate the help.

    I'm just waiting for the "my battery isn't work again what do I do"
    I drove the car a week ago, now it won't start again.

    Fuck this battery, what should I replace it with? I only have experience with Optimas and they don't make one for the Veloster. I'd like to get a new one today or tomorrow, does anyone have a recommendation? My Porsche user manual states not to boost any other cars for whatever reason so I'll have to wait until the Lancer comes home later today.

    lol

    Should probably just buy a new car. My recommendation would be not an electric one considering your proclivities.

    Kirkland battery. Though I guarantee you there's an Optima that fits your car, even if it's not advertised.

    Well, you've taken every precaution to ensure this battery is damaged at this point. So charge it with whatever you want and just plan on replacing it soon.

    Don't fall into his trap. Don't give him any answers. He won't follow them anyways. Tik-Tok, you should know better.

    Buy a 5lb race battery for that nose heavy beast.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    time for reverse psychology:


    DO NOT replace the battery!

    So far:
    - one vote for Kirkland
    - one vote for Optima going to shit after they moved their plant to Mexico

    Any other suggestions? I'll buy it today.

    If you plan on following your previous operating and maintenance procedure, Costco has the most forgiving warranty for the first 48 months.

    I've had some really hurting batteries get a new lease.on life with the recond function of my Ctek. Glad you got it working- though I would question it's longevity.

    Buy these. It says battery on them, so should work.
