    Default Battery Tender

    Can anyone recommend a battery tender, and where to buy one, for the winter? Thanks

    I bought the CTEK battery tender at Canadian Tire:

    I have 2 of them and they work well. They usually go on sale for around $50-60 if you wait.

    It's not the size that matters, it's the taste it leaves in your mouth.

    Battery Tender is a brand, and that brand is a good one. But honestly, as long as you have one that automatically switches to a float voltage, and not just an old school trickle charger, you will do fine.

    If you feel like it, you could also hook it up to a timer to only run 6 hours per day, which will save you a couple nickels of electricity.
    I have these two:

    I've used many of these CT chargers and the battery tender is much better. For about $90 you can get an actual battery tender with temperature compensation. I buy them from the local motorcycle shop in town (Airdrie)
