My stepway, 8 months old, wouldn't start last week, RAC jump started but couldn't find the problem, took to the garage who also couldn't find the problem but changed battery as under warranty. Today car won't start. Waiting for recovery. It appears from this forum that there is a common problem, how does the garage not know this.

4th day - no response!

This is the problem w/ smart alternators & the battery management electronics. The battery is the victim. A lithium battery would take high charge/ discharge currents & deep cycles.

They replaced your battery as it's SOH (state of health) is low. The plates would have got sulphated due to prolonged low charge status. Normally one would expect them to recharge it for u.

The solution for u is to buy a 5 amp charger suitable for your battery & use it regularly.
