All but one of my batteries in my life went from great to dead.
How old was yours?

Glad it happened at home like mine usually do. Glad it happened before you went on a long trip, too!

My motorcycle battery did the same. Had it 5.5years+, no issue. Went to start up to begin a 400 mile 2 day trip, and it was flat. Ironically the night before I was asking myself what would I do if that battery died during a long trip. GLAD it happend in my garage.

I took Lady instead and had a great time (though it was HOT!)
