You gotta make that switch to dilithium crystals, especially with all the beacons the mothership has

Wonder if Skycraft has those

4 in 2 years
The battery in our 89 only lasted 16 months & we recently discovered a significant battery drain. It has me wondering if the constant draining & recharging could shorten the life of a battery. You might want to attach a meter & see how much current is being used when the car is off.

Leda Acid batteries HATE to be discharged severly. You get the formation of particles on the lead plates in the battery and that stops that current flow.

I forget all of the techincal terms
