I use mine for my DD. It's a great battery during the summer, but as soon as it gets cold (and here in Laramie, that's an understatement) it's absolutely useless. Of course, my car isn't driven during that period, so thats a moot point.

Might not charge up. I'd try to get it to hold a charge before selling it.

There is a specific recharge cycle that is required to try and trick the battery back into taking a charge. Contact Braille for it. Or if not holding a charge... see if you can warranty it still.
