Battery charger in Queens/BK area?

Does anyone have a battery charger/tender around the Queens/Brooklyn area? I left my 2 month old battery on the concrete for a couple days to do some work in my trunk and when I put it back in its reading 11.6V with the car off and 13.5-7V running. Thanks.


Got it thanks Mods please delete thread thanks

I have one if it falls through. I left mine plugged into my lighter for almost a month and it started right up last sunday for the meet.

There is no way they will delete this one. Your battery-on-concrete follies will live forever on the intarwebs.

I was actually referring to your belief in the concrete gnomes that ruin batteries.
