random info. off the subject.
If you are a member of the AAA auto club and need a new battery, you can call roadside assistance and have the auto club send someone out with a new battery and they will install it on your car. Sure, you can have them jumpstart your car and drive to your favorite auto repair shop, but for some of us, that's one less appointment to schedule and place to get to and back.
After they installed it, they ran a check to make sure it was charging (making sure the battery was the problem, not the thing that recharges it).
I don't know if they offer that service in your area, but just file this away, if you're ever in that situation.
