I have 4 Battery Tender Jrs. One on my HC, one on my moho chassis batt, one on my Jeep and one one my wife’s quad. They work great.

Pretty sure that's what I got on mine. Had it for 5 winters now over 2 cars. No issues.

I have used this one for 5 years. Has a lot of features. Only one recommended for AGM batteries. Screen Shot 2019-12-01 at 2.29.58 PM.png Screen Shot 2019-12-01 at 2.29.58 PM.png

-Another vouch for the Deltran battery tender. I have a dual one that I keep both my Redeye and Camaro on all winter. I've had it for about ten years now with no issues at all.

I had a Battery Tender that was not AGM friendly. Battery only lasted 3 years.Was a older model 10+ years so not sure. Went with the Ctek

For a acid lead battery like the stock one - I just used a Harbor Freight one for $6 - plenty good.
For my lithium battery I bought the CTEC like in above ^^^Octanewide pic. , it was about $70.

X3 - I have battery tenders for my quads - kept my quad battery good for over 5 years. Quite a feat for that...
For my Barracuda I have an Optima and an Optima charger/tender, not really sold on the Optima - I am on my third one, but it doesnt get used a lot...

The Ctek MUS 4.3 is superior unit, a little more features then the 70$ unit. it has a Desulphation mode which is excellent for lead acid batteries on long term storage.
