If you're talking about a car battery - every five years or so.


I have had vehicle batteries last for 3.8 years / dead cell / replaced under battery warranty

8 years / weak when the weather turned cold

6 and 1/2 years / dead cell ( original Motorcraft battery in my vehicle )

I'm still using my replacement Motorcraft battery ( since February 2002 , now over 12 years , works fine ) * but that's not to say I go somewhere and come out to find that I need a boost because the battery has a dead cell
