you can bring it back with a regular charger you just have to do a bit of battery sitting .
Got a Multi meter ? charge at 12 V setting at 2.5 amps for about 6 hours take a reading

I've had my shorai for almost 4 years now. Had one occasion where i parked overnight somewhere, came out in the morning and it would barely crank. didn't leave anything on, not sure what happened. got a jump, charged it with tender and have been good ever since. But its on the back of my mind everytime I am about to hit the start button.

No problems with mine so far. They recommend leaving lights on for a bit before staring if it's cold due to the characteristics of lithium batteries. Not sure if that applied to your situation mx6er.
