Well, she'll be 53 in December. Oh, wait, you're talking my battery. 4...maybe 5 years. But has seen it's share of discarging when I forget to plug it in, since I still have a ghost phantom draw on the battery that I haven't elliminated. I know that any full discharge on car batteries really shortens their life, so it's time I guess. Tired of the stink, that's for sure.
