The battery needs to be properly charged periodically.

 

Depending on  the car alternator is not enough.

 

That's why I have an external battery charger to help me refresh my battery every few months.

 

That I din know. Thanks for the heads up

This morning I checked the battery voltage after 12 hours standby was 12.3V
Accordingly that’s about 50-60%, maybe time to change
My last change 2.5 years ago borsch 70Ah AGM almost $400
By the way, I found out for Mercedes cars, turn key one time , go to mileage menu, press the answer phone button together with OK button on the steering wheel for 3sec, the car voltage will be displayed real time, no need to use multi meter put on the battery to measure

Like wise for Beemer it can also be done via the trip metre.

But these voltage readout tells limited info. A battery analyser will show you the state of charge and even the cca figures along with others useful info.
