Well the battery is having a desgast and it can not hold the energy like a new if you listen music for like 3 hours is good I can't listen even one so everything is fine just don't use you radio more than one our or you going to need a new battery and they are not cheap

As batteries age their ability to hold a charge decreases. Some batteries are better than others as well. A genuine Honda battery would probably be your best bet. But I'm sure they're more expensive than an aftermarket battery. At the NAPA store where I work we get two and three year old batteries as core returns all the time. Mostly aftermarket brands. The one aftermarket brand that's really good is Interstate. They seem to last very well. The one in my '08 Grand Marquis is 5 years old and still going strong! HTH. -Jim
