...assure the battery is newish (five years old won't charge anymore)...this can be found by the identifying "knock-off" labels on the top of your battery indicating the month/year of it's first charge...they are not LEAD anymore (environmental suicide)....but tin/antimony alloy~...fyi...[pop's VP of Engineering at Interstate]~
