How old is the battery? Has it been tested? No bad cell(s)?

How was it tested? Even new batteries can be defective!

Starting wityh a fully charged battery(assume 12.5 volts) turn on the high beam headlights (engine off), and let it sit for twenty minutes and re-test the battery.Might show a bad cell.
