Here in our hot low desert climate, battery life is considerably shortened. A "Five year" or "Seven year" car battery generally craps out between 2 and 3 years.

Every spring, I stop leaving any battery tools or phones in the garage....they take up indoor living until fall, being as that area never gets below 100 degrees.

Yeah it’s kind of a myth that cold weather kills batteries.
HOT weather is what kills batteries.
Of course under the hood in Arizona it gets pretty darn hot.
