A starting battery is just that. Was designed and tailored for just that. Put it on a buy and sell and use the money for other things. There are other things at play here that will render the battery useless to anyone and affecting its value to someone that needs a proper starting battery

It seems a lack of a quick discharge followed by a complete charge is not unlike exercise to extend the life. Sitting around and self discharging with the odd recharge is highly detrimental to a reasonable battery longevity


PS an investment in lithium with a battery management system is absolutely golden for any energy necessary experiment or toy. Lead acid is an absolute waste of time!!! Like screwing around with a film camera!!
