Looking for some thoughts. Had my car in for it's 12 month check today and in addition to the checks required by Kia Lookers did what they call a Health Check. It came out OK apart from the battery which they suggested needs an overnight charge. They did say if I left the vehicle with them they would do this overnight, but I would then have the problem of getting home and back in to the garage.

I never had this issue with my previous Sportage even though I admit I do a very low mileage particularly in the Winter. The Stop/Start system works as per normal and I thought this would not work if the battery charge was low? I think if I need to have it charged I need to leave it with a local garage so that I can walk back home. They did wave a piece of paper around with the following printed on it -

Volts 12,59U
Measured 767CCA
Rating 800CCA
Also a small graph showing a line around 40% up from the bottom mark.

This is Chinese to me anybody understand it? Would taking it on a 100 mile spin down the A! have the same effect in recharging the battery. I know nothing about the workings of cars any experts out there got any thoughts?

I found a site suggesting 12.6 volts with no loading at room temperature indicates a fuly charged battery, so your 12.59 is pretty much there.
Also, 767CCA measured of 800CCa is about 96%.

I just deduce this from http://www.knowyourparts.com/testing-automotive-batteries-starters/ so if your ISG works then I think there is no need for an overnight charge.

Thanks Signman, after leaving the garage tonight the ISG worked normally on three separate occasions, which had me wondering what can be wrong with the battery.

Combination of clips and screws. Never done a Sportage but it should be reasonably obvious what needs to come off once you are in there.
If you're planning on doing much stuff on your car then a copy of the factory service manual, £10 eBay, is worth its weight in gold. I have them for my Kia's and find them very useful.

I agree, but as the vehicle is 2017 I cant see anybody is going to produce one.
