Back from the dead

subaru charger

I had the Subaru battery on the charger all day yesterday, pulling the plug last night when the arrow moved into the green “Finished” area.

I let it sit overnight to see if the charge would hold, then fired it up about 10:30 a.m. to drive to the post office. The engine started quickly and it appeared the battery had plenty of cranking power.

I’m guardedly optimistic that it has several months of life left, which will spare us the expense of a new $100+/- battery. I’ll toss the heavy duty jumper cables into the back, just in case.
