    Battery Tender ? rxt

    Do you have to disconnect battery when charging ? Our rxt's set for 2-4 weeks sometimes without use.

    I'm only hooking my battery up to it a few days a month until its fully charged. I feel thats better than not doing anything...

    Hook up the battery tender and leave it alone...anytime you are not riding. Don't disconnect the battery. The charger will not hurt the battery and keeps it just right for riding anytime. I leave mine hooked up all winter, such as it is, a month or more at a time. When I'm ready, it's ready. If I'm not in the water the tender is plugged in. I expect to get 3 or more seasons out of my battery this way.

    I do the same with mine. On my bike I used to have the terminals mounted permenantly to a female connector on the frame. I plugged it in after very ride. Really helped in prolonging my battery's life IMO.

    how much is it for a battery tender? are they the same as a battery charger? My dad has a battery charger at his house, dont have time to see if it says tender on it or not.
