My SA told me that the battery requires freeway driving to recharge adequately. He said 20-30 mile drive would be adequate. Unfortunately there are several of us who drive in stop/go rush hour - even if on the freeway most of the time. He said that was inadequate and recommended I charge the battery once weekly.
