If my experience is typical, then the battery won't be lasting much
longer.  The cells on my stock battery were half empty after about 3
years.  Refilling the cells revived it a bit, but that lasted only a
few months.  

I went out and got Diehard International.  I had no problems
installing it.  Getting all the plastic pieces off was the hardest
