It does not need to be discharged...not that it friggin matters, but at work we used to just flip them into a sink. its acid proof from the old days. we used baking soda by the ton. once its neutral its pull the plug and off it goes. we order all our batteries dry now.

get the yellow 70 dollar ones, they rule

I killed a battery once by hooking it up to the charger and setting the timer for 2 hours. the timer didnt work, and the battery melted on the shop floor. there was alot of smoke.

I can't think of one place that would warranty a part that wasn't originally bought by the owner.

Murray's will, if we can tell it our part. Hell as long as brake pads have shims on the back, we will give you a new set most of the time.

The receipt was in the little receipt holder on the side of the battery. No way for them to know who bought it. +1 for non-computerized record keeping.
