    Battery Tenders have worked for me for over 30 years. I have dozens of them.
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    Deltran Battery Tender, they last forever & will not cook your battery. I've been using them on my bikes & boats for many years. The company, Deltran, is awesome also. A few years back I misplaced one of the removable pigtails with the battery clips on it, it also comes with a piece you can permanently mount on your battery that plugs directly into the charger. I called them to see if I could order a new one. The girl on the phone tells me she would be happy to send out a replacement immediately at no charge, no problem. I told her, "It's my fault, it didn't break, I lost it". She didn't want my money! There's not too many companies left that treat customers that well.

    Battery Tender Jr. is all I use on all my batteries it will never overcook a battery like some "trickle" chargers because it has a built in system that completely shuts off charging untill voltage drops below a certain level so it will not overcharge.
