Can you tell us what that Special Charger is & where you got it ,I would like to be able to buy it if its reasonable ,or rent one , if needed[/QUOTE]My new-to-me 2008 EX AWD had an almost "dead" battery when I bought it in 2014. When I checked it out, it was the OEM battery from 2008!!! 6 years old!! It wasn't holding a charge so I put it on the special charger and let it do it's thing. BOOM...nearly brand new battery...ahem still 6 years old.
