That would be OK for me, I make long drives, but only infrequently. My car (for instance) has been in the garage for 12 days in a row until yesterday, when I drove it 2 miles. In a few weeks I will drive 800 miles in a day, and then 5-6 days later I will return. A 1000 mile battery would work fantastically for me excepting a few very infrequent long road trips.
