I have a 2009 Miata retractable hardtop. It has never been on a wet street and I keep it immaculate. I have a pretty serious issue as it goes through batteries. I have had a total of eight and the last three were Optima's in two years. Just replaced the new one under warranty yesterday. Some thing is going on. I took it to Advanced Auto and they checked alternator and it checked out. Any body have any ideas? Every time I park it, I check to see all lights are off and top is locked down.

Do you have any aftermarket ad ons? Does the car sit for a long period?

Zero after market stuff. The car does sit a lot, sometimes several weeks without a start. It has eat three of these in two years.https://www.batteriesplus.com/productdetails/OPT8014=045?locationofinterest=&locationphysical=9013455&gclid=CIvqyd6-g9QCFYc7gQodtAQEXA
