If you treat a battery CORRECTLY it should do you a damn sight more than a couple of years.

The biggest mistake people make is thinking that because a battery is left fully charged at the end of the season itl STILL be fully charged come the next.

Even "maintenance free" batteries need some sort of maintenance charge during the winter months
