Thank you. I actually did get a new battery and was amused at how much pep it now has in start up! I do appreciate your helping me understand it was a good move :)
You made the right call. The mounting position of the battery on a smart ensures longer life than batteries that live next to engines, but 9 years is a long time. I don't drive much either and I installed a connector for a battery maintainer that plugs in so that I can keep the battery charged. The connector hangs out a bit from the carpet and has a light that is green when the battery is fully charged and red when it is getting low. This is it:


Driving the car every two weeks will work too! Just remember that car batteries last the longest when they are kept fully charged.
