The sad "click" strikes again

Tried to leave work for lunch to find the 4Runner wouldn’t start; coworker gave me a jump and I came home. Checked with meter and it’s charging, so it looks like the “Power Start” battery (dated 2012) that came in the car has said no more. I was skeptical of it from brand/age, but I’ve never seen a battery go from “starts fine” to “dead” in a day. I drove the car yesterday with zero problems, this morning it was a little bit slow to start but fired up, then after 4 hours in the work parking lot it was dead.

I guess I’m going to NAPA after lunch. It needed a new battery before winter anyway.

Hopefully I’ve not developed some weird parasitic drain.
