I have two bikes that I put on a battery tender every time they are parked in the garage. Original battery in my Ducati is 7 years old and still cranking.halo99 said:When is the use of a battery tender prescribed? Can one be used daily?
Plug the charger into the accessory plug and watch the monitor llights. As easy as falling off a log.magellan44 said:Hi guys,
Do I understand you all that you don't have to connect the charger to the battery. That I can use the power outlet on the GT to charge the battery. Does the key have anything to do with charging. I have not use the outlet on the bike so I just took it for granted that it is activated by the key. So if the key is off you can still charge the battery. this is all good. By the way how much was the charger from Bob's?
I have a BMW brand charger. Even though I remove the battery during the winter this style charger (ditto with the "Battery Tender") is a low amp one that automatically runs all Winter. I put mine in my heated basement, and let her go. Myself, I will be using the accessory plug soon, as I took my battery out the other day for Winter and plan on riding more soon, F--- the cold. Was out 1 1/2 wks. ago, and ran into three (white outs) small blizzards, and a small size hail storm and was loving it.halo99 said:When is the use of a battery tender prescribed?
