G'day, mates. A general rule of thumb for lead acid batteries: They discharge 1% a day just sitting there. So, 30 days, 30% discharge, time to get it charged back up. 2 months and an older battery probably won't start what you want to run. Of coarse, ambient temperatures and battery quality also play a factor. Cheers.
