    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

    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.

    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.
