Default Easiest way to kill a car battery so that it won't hold a charge?

If I leave an interior light on, will that be sufficient to kill a cell or two?

I just need it to hold less than 10v.

Default I need to kill this lame autozone battery so they will warranty it.

The battery is obviously defective, but they refuse to warranty it, since it holds more voltage than their threshold for warrantying after they charge it for an hour.

I am tired of pulling it out of the X5 every time it dies, I am sure that my charging system is fine.

should have just bought another OEM...

Default oh well. I don't think leaving the interior light on will reduce the ability to recharge. I think

you'll need quite a few drain / recharge cycles to reduce it's performance.

Default yeah, if you could bump up the amps and get it boiling / drain it and repeat a few times

that will probably ruin it's ability to charge. But if he blows it up, I doubt autozone will give him anything.
He should try another autozone. Some guys are just ****** and some employees just don't care.
