Another battery issue

Model: xchallenge
Year: 2007
ABS: Yes
Mileage at time of issue: 5,007 mi.
Date of occurrence: 08/06/09
Modifications (if any): Powerlet GPS plug
Description of Failure(s): Battery completely dead after overnight in a hotel. The battery had been replaced by MaxBMW prior to me starting my cross-country trip on 7/17/09. It lasted 3 weeks and 5k miles and gave up the ghost. BMW roadside assistance towed it in a covered trailer 250 mi. to Brown motorworks in Pomona, CA. No charge and no hassle, thank God!
Resolution (if any): BMW dealer just received the Yuasa replacement batteries and put one in for me, covered under warranty.
