About 2 weeks ago, attempted to drive the msp on a few errands but the battery said nope. I picked up a NOCO GB40 booster pack that same week but it continued rain for the next 2 weeks or so. Finally had some sunshine over the weekend. Before using the booster pack, I measured my battery which read 9.65 volts haha. Hooked up the booster pack and the car started up after about 5 seconds of cranking. What a great and compact device!

Since my OEM positive battery terminal was stretched out, I ended up changing those out too. Nothing fancy, just the ones you can pick up at the store. Been meaning to change it out for a few years now but I'm a slacker. For those wondering, I just shimmed the old loose and stretched out terminal with a bent washer.

NOCO GB150's are commonly used to start lots of cars in a row/without having to recharge the pack, so you've made a good choice!

My battery ended up dying so I bought a new one. Rear left caliper seized, replaced it with a cardone unit. All appears well, just haven't taken it for a spin yet.

^^^ What He Said

On a quiet night in the winter, I can hear my car dissolving.
It's kind of a bubbling sound. Lol

(I'm kidding, but it might be true ??)
