how to maintain your battery

the one in your alarm fob.
Yeah so the darned alarm would not set for me this weekend and I just got around to swapping the spare which works fine

put a new ( dead in package ) battery and no go. So noting a bit of haze on the contact I it it with a drop of contact cleaner and boom. A good boom it works from the house through the window again.

the battery savings will make for a more favorable cost\benefit analysis of this seasons biking.

Re: how to maintain your battery

A pencil eraser is a good abrasive to clean electrical contacts if accessible. Clean the eraser residue from the area.
