Robby, why not buy a battery tender? As long it isn't an optima or the like dry cell battery you'll never have worry about a dead battery again. FYI summit racing sells the waterproof battery tender for under $50.

hi all,

quick question. my battery is dead because i haven't driven the 200 fpr 3 weeks. once before, i set the charger to 2 amp trickle for 10 hours and it worked. this time, the battery is still dead. this is with the positive clamp on the positive terminal and the negative on the chassis as dictated by the battery charger instructions.

i can up the ante to 10 amp, but the audi manual says to not exceed 6 amps. being i'd rather not fry my electrical system, is this salient advice or is audi being overly cautious?

i assume that means the 30 amp quick charge is out of the question, eh?
