"A batteries self discharge drastically slows in colder temps as do the chemical reactions that accelerate sulfation."
IIRC chemical reactions double/halve in speed with every 10 degrees Fahrenheit of temp change. Or is that 10C? It's been a while since I needed to know that number.

Still...that's incredible longevity.

Now, once we've solved the mystery of batteries, maybe we can figure out why mattresses have to be fourteen inches thick these days, and a six-inch thick mattress can no longer be found, much less bought. (VBG)
