    Battery Storage

    I use a battery tender for winter storage. What's does everydody else use? Plus just seen this stuff. Just wondering if anybody has used this product? http://www.batteryweb.com/equaliser.cfm

    I use a battery tender plus. Absolutely love it
    My father in law has a nice little charger made by Honda. He likes it but I found it a bit pricey

    I never have to put my ski up for long periods of time becuase of the weather down here, but while not running my ski, I usually put it on a battery tender when I know I won't be riding for a few weeks.

    I usually place it on the tender Friday, that way if I ride Saturday, the battery will never be an issue.

    Battery Tenders work the best. Chargers are known to over charge and cause batteries to have a short life if used for long term storage.
    $45.00 bucks for the battery tender is pretty cheap and it can be used on more than one battery at a time.

    i use a simple small batterry charger 1A-12V and i plug it to the battery
    every month at least,sometimes every 2 weeks for about 6 hrs for the whple winter.
    never had a batterry fail yet but you must remember to plug it.
    a batterry tender is the better way but used this system since 1998.
    oh and it only costs $10.00 canadian.
