That's great, but I'd still recommend you follow Allan's advice and measure the battery voltage with the engine running. If the voltage is too low or too high, your new battery will fail prematurely.

Also, all batteries self discharge over time. A vehicle battery needs a charge at least every 2 or 3 months if you car is kept in storage.
