Default Es 330 2005 Battery issue

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.

So I'm just back from the 3 month long vacation and think my battery dead. I tried to jump start it and got the engine charge it for an hour. But it seemed the battery can't hold power anymore.

I did some Google and they said some car battery charger can charge the battery back to live. I'm choosing Battery Tender Plus 021-0128 but the another question poped up. What type of battery my car is and is it compatible with this charger?

Here's Amazon link for more info, no affiliate:
Battery Tender Plus 021-0128 Battery Tender Plus 021-0128

I found the battery label to be "00544-MF24F-575". Google it but no luck what type of battery it is.

So can I use the Battery Tender Plus 021-0128 to charge mine back to live? Should I worry about my battery type when choosing the charger??

I don't know anything about mechanics, but I'm here to learn

Thank you

Battery tender won't revive a bad battery, the tender itself is not battery specific beyond a 12 volt car battery. Time for a new one.

Get a fast charger like this: (from Harbor freight or cheap off craigslist): $15 like this:

The Deltran piece is what you wanted to have left on your car while you were gone; you would have come back and it be topped and good to go. Use it next time you leave a car or bike unattended a while.

Thanks all for the replies. I've actually replaced with the new battery.

The concern now turns into which battery charger is the best suit for maintenance.

If I travel oversea for 3 months, is Battery Tender able to maintain mine for that long? I just simply take out the battery leave it charged by Battery Tender?

Yes simply hook it up and leave it charging for as long as needed.
