Those old high power chargers just cooked the dickins out of the battery and killed more than they cured is what I have learned. There are others but I have a Genius 3.5A and paid around $68 for it. I'm never going back. There are other threads on smart chargers.
    I've had one of those chargers for years...They work great in re-condition mode.

    Got 10 years out of my original TC30 battery. It helped that I plugged it in over the winter - made starting easy!

    The original battery in my brand new 1982 Ford 1700 lasted eleven years. The replacement - which was supposedly the same quality - lasted four.

    Ain't technology grand.......... Industry has learned and adroitly applied the technology - engineered obsolescence. Its a real money maker.........

    That's really impressive for being in TX. 10 years is no big deal up here in the cold climates, but almost unheard of down south. I finally had to change my L4200's battery this past fall after 12 years - and that was a replacement. I get my batteries at Sam's Club - Duracell. I get the highest cranking amp battery that will fit into the slot - I think my new one is 1100 CCA.

    I just replaced the battery in my2012 Rhino with around 150 hr on it, and it was gone, wouldn't even restart after plowing snow for a hr. Tractor kabota battery is 10 yr, 8 months old with little over 1000 hr on it, cold starts are always done with block heater on, 20* or less, but it showing signs of slow starting, without block heater on I dont think it would start on even turn motor over, makes me wonder if the old battery is still giving full heat to the glow plugs, seems like now I have to hold the key back longer than I use to.

    As far as I know, the big 1100 CCA's like that are only available in the north. I used to get them in Maine but down here I'm lucky to find a 950 CCA. Big CCA batteries are definitely an advantage to a cold climate.

    I had a similar situation, About 9 years out of the factory battery on my Harley, that also was no "maintainer" in the 5 month winter season like I should have. I went ahead and spent the $tupid money for another HD battery, only a few years on it now.
