Battery replacement

I believe my 05 Balt still has the original battery in it. Anyone think its time to replace? My first chevy so Im unsure how long the batteries they use last.

They last till they die. I wouldn't change it until you have to. Mines the original from 07.

You should test it, but if you're on the original 05 battery, I'd replace.

Just realized battery is in trunk. Never seen a battery like this. Not your usual battery? More wires than normal. Anything special I should purchase?

Take it to autozone and show them the battery and they'll give you the same exact one.
Not all batteries work on all cars
