Guys,

My GTR is MY 09...so my battery is ca 4,5 years old now...
I replaced it yesterday with Yellow Top...
But the old battery was still working, I just want to have peace of mind...
I was not driving the car during winters, and I occasionally (every 2 weeks) connected it to the OLD battery charger (when I say old, I mean OLD, like 20-30 years, it is my father's charger...)
My old battery even got completely dead once (car didn't want to start, I recharged and ressurected the battery then )...added some distilled water, cause some cells were half empty then...
So, I think that maintaining a GTR battery is not rocket science... and that Ctek charger is a bit of a marketing too...
