    Returned home from a weeks vacation. Had to run to store to fill frig from being away.
    2014 Charger battery dead, has about a 6 month old AGM battery.
    2012 company truck, battery dead, maybe a year old.
    No problem, any excuse to take the Roadrunner out - battery dead. 3 yr old NAPA Legend, always disconnected when not used.
    Screw it, I'll mow the lawn. Battery dead.
    Thank goodness for 10 yr old Jeep Wrangler, it started.
    Oh yeah, while vacationing, the Marine battery died in camper, and key fob battery died for truck.
    So, Just what is going on?

                    Linda's 06 Charger doesn't like to set for a week either. Often just clicks after about 10 days.
                    69? Always lights up. I credit the cut-off switch. 09 Challenger has original battery and starts. I hope. Live on a hill, can bump start that one.

                        And you didn't get in touch with me? I feel slighted.

                            The new cars have so much crap that is constantly on. They are always looking for the key fob unlock signal to unlock doors, they power alarm systems, satellite or phone connections (so you can use an app on you phone to unlock it from 1000 miles away - BTW, why the heck would you want to do that?!?), etc.

                            It's no wonder the batteries in these new cars die so quickly. My old Road Runner is super reliable that way because when it is off it is truly OFF!

                              Is there an alien base anywhere that takes dead batteries? I have a few laying around.
