A wires resistance goes up the hotter it gets.
Just saying.

But the voltage provided by Gibbs free energy law also goes up.

Just to give you some idea what a pain in the ass that is on batteries. If you don't get a door shut all the way and the interior lights stay on and drain the battery, then it freezes and once they freeze good and solid they're junk.
After buying a few new batteries to replace one's that weren't very old I've gotten pretty good at making dammed sure the doors get closed.
I love Minnesota!
on some cars w/ sticky doors & mystry dome lights, removing the bulb was one solution.

" a battery drain at -20f(+/-?),may not be the same, again "

What's the ambient where the battery is located?

I've had good success bringing back flat-lined batteries using our OLD ass tester with a "load test" switch.. Read: "Fairly safe Dead-short switch"

I'd hit a warm battery with 60A for a while, then hit the load tester switch and rag the **** out of it. Rinse and repeat until it starts holding a charge overnight, then decrease charging amps, repeat, and finally a trickle charge to fully maximize voltage.

It died with a bulb on at around 20F as the low. The work was done at around 40F but charged over night in below freezing temps.

Let it sit for six days and the voltage was at 13.3V. Drove it to work today and it cranked like a brand new battery in the summer. Ambient temperature was 23F.

We did stuff like that at the motorcycle dealer.

Another odd tsb i remember (no clue what manufacturer) was dropping the battery on the floor from about a 1 foot height. I'll let you guess why.

Personally, i buy a battery at the first hint of trouble.
I also buy new tires at 3/32", and new snows at 5/32".
But i remember the used tires/battery days.
