Battery Tender Plus or Jr.

Getting a Battery Tender, wondering if I can get away with a Jr, or if I need the big Plus.

What are you guys rockin'?

Re: Battery Tender Plus or Jr.

I'm rocking the Yuasa HotShot Yuasa Hotshot Automatic Motorcycle Battery Charger
seems to be comparable to the Battery Tender Jr. its done me well for 3 winters so far doing 3 of my own batteries and a couple for friends. even used it on my car battery before when it got extremely cold here and it didn't wanna start most days (my commute was only about 3 miles so it didn't charge the battery very good). it'll probably resume duty next week.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Battery Tender Plus or Jr.

I'm pretty sure they are the same thing. One just looks fancy. I rock both of them.

Re: Battery Tender Plus or Jr.

Got several "jrs" and have used them for years on car and bike alike. No problems.

Re: Battery Tender Plus or Jr.

Got two jr.'s, haven't had a problem with either yet.

You're never really lost if you have a full tank of gas.

Re: Battery Tender Plus or Jr.

I went a different and less expensive route. A Schumaker SEM_1562A Battery Companion. It works just like a Tender but I found it at Wallyworld (the evil retailer) for $17. It has a quick connect like the Tender and does a great job. Here's some linkage SEM-1562A - 1.5 amp Battery Companion®
