    I talked to Odyssey directly and they said they don't recommend it saying it was an inadequate charger keeping it to low actually causing it to lose life and they never tried to sell me on another type they just said it will be fine to leave it until spring??

    It does have a warranty...so I guess I will leave it...now I have this dam battery tender junior for nothing

    The warranty reads using anything other than the ODYSSEY® Ultimizer™ 12V charger to charge or maintain a odyssey battery will void the warranty.

    Advice from odyssey was charge your battery til green light came on then store it on a piece of wood off the concrete disconnected in a cooler the better place and will hold that charge for 11 months or more easily.

    My personal advice: I love the odyssey charger. Use it all the time and everything runs flawless.

    Odyssey batteries charge at 7 amp charge and cut off after 14.4 volts.

    I know several guys that used to run total loss on their GPRs and used the PC625 and the battery tender for years without problems

    So do you think I should just shelf it and leave until around May or put the Tender on it? Will I get longer life by either method?

    I shelved mine. I have no problems yet. Throw it on the trickle if that has been working for you.


    Sounds like this is more political like "buy mine or else." I have a feeling like rich said trickles work well too.
