Due to their internal composition,
batteries continually self discharge.
The discharge rate depends on the
type of battery and ambient temper-
ature. As temperature rises, so does
the discharge rate. Every 15°C (59°F)
doubles the rate.
Electrical accessories, such as digi-
tal clocks and computer memory, also
draw current from the battery even
when the key is switched off. Due to
a combination of such "key-off" draws
and hot temperature, a battery can go
from fully charged to completely dis-
charged in a matter of days.
