Update: I just ran a full charge/recondition on the battery in my Subaru, made it to the green step 7, so yay! This battery was tested as not good by Firestone a year or so ago, and wouldn't take a full charge on my ancient dumb charger, but continue to start the car OK. I don't drive the Subaru very much, and I just got clicks yesterday when I went to drive it. It's a Costco battery, so I was torn about trying to warrantee it vs. save it. I found the receipt and the warranty was up over a year ago, so I'm pretty happy it appears to have taken a full recondition charge. We will see how long that lastâ€¦ On another note, is there ever a good reason to use a big old (I'm guessing late 70s to early 80s) battery charger now that I have the Ctek?
