thanks - next time i'll get a deep discharge battery [ meantime as UPS only

It is alright. Car batteries are sturdy. Not designed for deep discharge
every day, but a few minutes drain is not that deep, for a thing that
was designed for 8A·h, and now you probably have 35..50. Usage is
similar (or even weaker) to starting a car in winter after a week or two
parked outside.

Cheers / Saludos,
