I've heard that hydroxychloroquine is good for fcuked batteries.
 
Add Epsom salt to the battery and buy a trickle charger online, a decent heavy duty battery should last 5 yrs at least.

Just charge it and go for a long drive out when you need it.

As a classic car owner this is pretty much my standard routine every spring.

Charge your car battery up,{CHECK YOUR FAN BELT IS CORRECTLY TENSIONED}
start engine and go for a good long drive,
stop engine, put car in garage overnight, next morning start car,
if car doesn't start, replace battery with new one, don't freck about with it,
if car starts run it for 15 mins or go for a drive every 4 days, if battery goes
flat in 4 days, replace with new one,
Garages are open, they remained open as they are classed as an essential service,
If you subscribe to breakdown service, call them, say you need a battery
pay with a card
Don't waste your time with a battery that's frecked
