    battery tender is a great brand. We used one of their marine line ones on our boats 3 batteries while it sat up for the winter.

    The one you linked to this thread i believe peyton actually uses on his bagged green truck. Deff worth the $40 imo

    buy the one you posted, great quality, goes into drip mode when the battery is charged to save on electricity, and they have terminal wires that can stay connected all the time - i tuck mine behind my headlight when i drive it, untuck it and plug it back in when i get home, no need to open the hood. Youll be pleased.

    Another vote for the one you posted Jared. We have 5 at the house for 3 bikes, 1 atv, and one for the 69 skylark. Plus we sell them at work. Never had an issue with that brand at all.

    Just checked our pricing. You're better off getting it through Amazon from Billy's link. I can get it for the same price, but shipping would be a few bucks.

    none of the descriptions state that the quick disconnect comes with it.

    The one on Amazon has a quick disconnect.

    [​IMG]

    You attach the one separate set of leads (on the right) to the terminals and hand the plug out of the grill. Attach it to the lead from the unit plugged into the wall and you're good to go.

    lol, I know how they work! I'm saying in the description they don't all state that they have them, and some actually have a pic of the package, and some of those I saw didn't look like they have them. Also, amazon "suggested" I buy the quick disconnect, which led me to believe they do not come with all packages. I read some of the FAQs and a few of them stated they do come with them. I'll order from one that says they do for sure.
