A lead acid battery discharges about 1% per day.

5 months is 150 days.    You do the math.

I like a solar cell maintainers for outside and trickle chargers around juice or inside.

100% charge on a battery is 12.6v. Charging is 13.8 to 14.4v.

50% charge is 12v.  You can boil a battery dry at 14.8v or so.

A battery that is allowed to have low voltage will sulfate and lose the ability to put out full power.

I like the lithium batteries.  My road and water scooters have one.  Starts next year like it was the next day.

 

All the above is out of the brain.  Your voltage may vary.
