I don't charge them over winter (Oct.-April/May) and I've had a mix of batteries, including wesco. They sit in the bike (dirt, oilhead, airhead) unheated and still hooked up and usually have enough juice to get the bike to fire. If not, I just put a regular old charger on them for about an hour and never had a problem with them. I change them out more often for time than any thing else.

Be an interesting pole: trickle charge vs not over winter/results. Maybe keeping them at full charge isn't a good thing?
