of course we are interested !

The retailer was Impact Battery. The have east coast phone hours, but were easy to reach and very easy to talk to. Knowing that an AGM battery can fail that quickly let's me know that I'm not crazy.

Also, I removed the battery from the bike, when I did, my new (non-RE) terminal broke. To make matters worse, the terminal on my battery tender connection broke too. I will be replacing those along with the battery.

The replacement came in and has been installed. I put it on the battery tender and it took about 10 minutes for it to reach full charge. I had to replace one fuse, but she is now running again.

As many have alluded to AGM batteries can fail catastrophically. I had a tow in of a nearly new, very expensive SUV. I couldn't get it to crank even with our super high output LI-PO jumper. Had to push it in and when tested the machine spat out "bad cell" within minutes, funky stuff here. Don't want to be a hater but i swear our OEM's are EXIDE.
