I can't say that this thing is all that stylish, but then I'm not sure that it needs to be. It sits in my basement most of the year, and then in the winter I pull the battery out of my bike and put it on the shelf with this thing attached to it. No one has been in my basement except me, so what they don't see, they can't make fun of me for. I get the last laugh, knowing that I have a well-charged battery waiting to go into my bike in the spring. The battery itself isn't all that hot to look at, either, but that's what they make plastic covers for. I like the fact that this has alligator clips and round cicle things. I just screw the round circle type attachers onto my battery pegs, and they stay on there real good, no way they can get knocked loose like those alligator clips. But if I ever needed to shock someone's nipples, I'd probably go with the gators.
This product has been a life saver .After every winter I usually end up buying a new battery because of the my bike sitting all winter.This Battery Tender actually works and helps your battery stay charged and refreshed so that no matter how long your bike sits it will keep your battery at charged level with out any worries or hassles.The thing I like most it has a trickled charge effect that will help your battery from being over charged and causing any electrical or fire safety issues.I would definately recommend this product to anyone that doesnt ride there during the winter months because it pays for itself after one winter when you dont have to replace your battery in the spring.
You've left your bike or boat battery set all winter..... never remembering to keep them charged up like you planned to do. Now it's time to go and you've got to charge the battery first. Tired of batteries not lasting as long as they should? Here's the solution. Comes with two harnesses. Mount the custom connector on your bike (Quick, easy, tucks out of the way and looks OK) and you still have the alligator clips for the boat battery. Your batteries will last longer and over time this little jewel will pay for itself.
In previous years I've either had to recharge or replace a battery after having the bike set up all winter but now the battery stays charged just as if I had used it the previous day. This product saves the battery and money. I even bought another one for my riding mower. Great product!
I had this model for about 8 years and it worked like a charm. My kids finally got the better of it though. Even after numerous drops and even having to duct tape the housing together, it still worked. But, all good thing come to an end. Replaced it with a newer model and love that one too.
I received my Tender in a timely fashion, installed it, fired it up, and it preformed exactly as I hoped it would. no more hard starts on my Road King. I already have recommended Dennis Kirk, and this tender to my buds. Outstanding product, and like the inline fuse holder.... ZMANN
I've been using the Battery Tender Junior for quite a few years, and it has paid for itself, more than once. My 2003 bike was 6 years old when I sold it, and the original factory battery was still like new. Keeping the battery fully charged prevents sulfides from forming. (sulfides kill batteries) My other bikes share my Battery Tender Junior on a rotating basis, and I suspect that those batteries will also have a much longer lifetime than what is normally expected.
Leads fastened into place with ease, was charging in less than 5 min.. Very happy with product, very happy with shipping. Ordered on a Wed. was told wouldn't receive unit until Tues. , was in my hands and on the bike on Sat. Couldn't be happier. Will recommend to many.
It's great that it comes with a permanent lead wire (I use that for my motorcycle) and a second lead with Alligator Clips. It's easy to switch between charging my bike and charging my tractor battery and any other battery I need charging. All for a very reasonable price.
From purchase to installation I have no complaints it was great. I have already suggested the battery tender to my friends. Easy to install, and the bike starts every time no matter how long it has sat.
This is for my son for Christmas . Have not used it yet, but he will love it. I have one on my hog so he wanted to be like dad and have one for his 4 wheeler. They do a great job in maintaining battery life.
This thing is like magic, I only plug it in when the bike is going to sit for long periods of time. My brother leaves his on all the time unless he's running the machine. I've witnessed batteries lasting 10 years with this tender.
