Tested the latest gadget from Optimate - their onboard battery monitor.

Its inexpensive and could help avoid a breakdown.

Compatible with Optimate chargers too..

I like these things but how much does it add to the parasitic current draw when the bike is not running? If you have one you could insert in line a milliamp meter for some data. And, it has to be on a pig tail to the battery not an OEM power port. Optimate makes some of the best battery maintenance products.

Why not just get one of those small lion battery jumper/starter paks? They are $50 at costco and will get you started and more in an emergency plus charging all sorts of things when on the road!
