    Battery/storage..my experience

    For the third year in a row, I've had zero storage issues due to removing my battery. I  remove my battery in early November and store it in my basement for the winter being sure to trickle charge it for a few days each month to keep the sulfides up. I installed the battery yesterday and had no problems. The PSM light goes out after driving a hundred feet or so. The clock required re-setting but radio pre-sets are held in memory. Power window lifts require holding the switch down for a few seconds after the windows close to re-learn memory for open/close setting when entry/exit. For those of you who don't have access to electricity at your place of storage or prefer not to leave a charger/tender onyour car, don't hesitate to remove your battery for storage. It takes 5 minutes to remove/install and is hassle free!

    Surely it would be hugely less hassle to just plug a trickle charger into the cigarette lighter port?  Job done.

    5 minutes in the fall and five minutes in the spring is a "huge hassle". I did mention that "for those without access to power" or "those who do not want to use a tender". Mine is stored in a house that is unoccupied for much of the winter, so I prefer not to have a tender on it as well as I dont need to leave a window partially down or the boot open. Just my preference.  Also, my battery is stored in a warmer place, hopefully extending it's service life.

    I don't know... . I would never store my computers in an cold damp unheated garage where air stagnates. Our cars are loaded with electronics and "computers." How can you be sure about favorable humidity, temperature and ventilation conditions? Seems like you are lucky that mildew, and corrosion don't take a toll.
