$19.99 Battery Tender

I was reading a thread tonight about the best type of battery tender to use on our BMW bikes. That said, I received an email today from Jafrum that advertised a battery tender junior charger. Seems like an OK deal but nothing of a steal ($8.95 to ship it).

Here is a link to read: http://www.jafrum.com.

Hope it helps.

Re: $19.99 Battery Tender

I've had 2 of them for @ 3yrs. No complaints. I see a lot of talk about battery and tender compatibility on site. I have a 5 yr old no maintenance BMW battery. I guess ignorance is bliss, because I've never had any problems. If you can get that tender delivered for under $30, you've scored.

Re: $19.99 Battery Tender

The Deltran Junior tender will do a job, but it is half as slow as the Tender plus, which you can purchase at Amazon for 43.00 shipped.

Re: $19.99 Battery Tender

I've half a dozen bikes sitting in the shop right now - including my LT - with this insanely cheap (under $10.00 currently - but I bought mine on sale for $5.00 each) Harbor Freight tender on each one.

Automatic Battery Charger - 12V

It works great as long as your battery is fully charged when you put it on... It will not bring a poorly charged battery "back to life" like the expensive units can, but if you are showing 12v or more you are good to go for pocket change.

Re: $19.99 Battery Tender

Is the Deltran tender half as slow or half as fast? Doesn't half as slow = twice as fast?

I would consider the glass is twice as big as it needs to be!

Re: $19.99 Battery Tender

I got one myself from them nearly a year ago at that price. Not bad at all and more than does the job. The shipping was a tad lower at the time but not much. Plus since they're in NC and I'm in GA, the standard shipping got it here the next day.

Ron, the more expensive charger/tenders, send higher quality electrons to the battery. Didn't you know that?
