The battery in this 2012 is the original one from the factory with the car. I only have a very simple multi-meter at work. I tested and got 11V (doesn't look like this tester has decimals on it) I have one at home that I know will test more accurately)
The local nissan dealer wants $98 plus tax and no core exchange for a Leaf 12v battery.
I'll keep you updated as I do more... it's been cold windy and wet each night since I got some good advice on what to do.
I saw you post on another question and you mentioned a 'load tester'. I saw one at harbor frieght but out of the reviews I saw too many saying that the part would fail after a few uses, which is sad for a $20 tool, I don't want to take it to a autozone/Oriellly because I'd be afraid they'd damage the battery with a load tester expecting to get large AMPS to start a car. I'd have to read up on the specs of a Leaf 12v battery.
