Haven't bought a new replacement Delco battery in ages, so am just curious.
a. Does the dealer have to "activate" the battery first when he pulls it
from stock by adding water or acid to it these days ?
I seem to remember that years ago, they did.
But the terminology now seems to be "sealed" so was wondering ?
b. If activation is not required, how long, typically, once installed in
the car, does the car have to be run before
the battery is "fully" charged ?
c. How long can a new battery just sit on a dealer's shelf, withoput any
charging, before it goes bad by sulfate forming on the electrodes or other
