Voltage was too low, starter wouldn't crank, then "womp womp 7-8 times" then stop. Once I got it jumped it would start fine, no oddity. But let the bat drain for a few hours, same oddity. Got that battery replaced the next day, couldn't be stranded.

Your issue is a little different, but similarly bizarre. Ideally it's just a bad battery and when they test it they can swap it for you.
Iím hoping for something of the sort, as my battery is still under warranty. I just got a new one about 8-9 months ago and had it tested 4-5 months ago. Everything checked out then, so who knows
