    Battery seems to die too easily

    Greetings everyone. I have a question that I don't seem to get good answers for out of my dealership.

    I don't put a lot of kilometers on my 2002 996 tt (3500 km in 13 months). I am aware of the issue that my battery can fail from lack of use. However, I use a trickle charger to keep it charged. Today, I discovered that my battery was dead when I wanted to take my car for a drive. To make matters worse, my Boxster (model year 2001) battery died as well and I drive that slightly more.


    My question is this: are Porsche cars more susceptible to this kind of problem? I have a Mercedes and a Lexus (also, both very low usage cars) and I don't have this problem.

    Maybe you got a sub-par battery, but I'm in the same low-miles
    mode, and I've had my car for 3 years, and I plug in the
    Porsche battery tender into the cigarette lighter socket,
    and I've never had a problem.

    Re: Battery seems to die too easily

    I have a 2000 Boxster S & and a late 01 TT. I drive the TT about once a week. The TT's battery was replaced about 2 months ago (at about 12000 km) because it would lose it's charge in about 4 days. The new battery has been fine so far, but it's early days. The Boxster, which I drive less often, has no such problem.

    I put it down to a dud battery. I don't trickle charge at all.
