Battery

I have a 96 ZX7R and I put a trickle charger on it last night. I get up this morning and it says 100%. So I left it on because i was running some errands. It was basically off was not running at all. I got home and pulled the charger, stuck the key in and NOTHING......Im think the battery is just gone. It has gone dead on me before for leaving the lights on (2times).....So does wal mart have a descent battery or should I hit up CG??????????????

Yeah. I check the connections and everything is clean. No build up, no corrosion. Just wont hit a beat. So im gonna chunk it and get a new one.

or take it to a Parts Store ( I recommend O' Reilly's) and have them do a load test. It will tell you if the battery has a dead cell or just plain kaput!
