I have two of them. I keep one on the boat battery and one on the golf cart battery. It's very worth $20 to have your batteries maintained. I have two of these: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_02871219000P?prdNo=7&blockNo=7&blockType=L7

Thanks, I think I might pick one of those up for sure. That is a great price too. I have two batteries so I might get two and then go from there. I will just run a extension line to the dock and keep em' hooked up

I keep my extension cord in the battery compartment with the charger and the battery and then just walk it to the front after I pull in my slip. Takes all of 10 seconds. :thumbs:

I have a trickle charger for four different pieces of equipment. I got 9 years out of a tractor battery using one. Prior to that, about 2 years is all one would last.

They are worth the the investment

Why buy new when you can restore?

I use one on my truck battery and motorcycle batteries (in the winter; separate charger for each). My dad SHOULD use one on his van for the winter (the battery has gone dead the past 4yrs while sitting; battery is pretty much shot).

I use Schumacher battery tenders and chargers. Farm and Fleet (I know, a regional store, but still) has them usually on sale for around $15-18.

CTEK is supposed to be a really good battery tender as well as battery conditioner. I was considering getting one myself.

Nice, those are a little on the Expensive side but I have heard great things about them

I seen that they have solar powered chargers as well and Harbor Frieght has them cheap.

I've really been looking at those too! The boat sits out in the sun 100% of the time


Jeff my brother uses electric tickle battery chargers on his collection of vehicles he has. Let me add this his 75 Trans Am is just about to see the paint booth im excited im going to test out the 455. :naughty:

Yep. I have a few of them. I have a thread on here somewhere for the Battery Doc, it's a great little unit, too.
