Battery Tender Junior 4.8 5 56 56
Simple & Does the Job! I live in Wisconsin and when the time came to store my bike I knew I needed to get a Battery Tender. The thing is with standard trickle chargers they do not have a maintenance charge "mode," whereas the battery tender does. A standard trickle charger can overcharge a charged battery and damage it. With a Battery Tender Jr. you don't have that issue to worry about. Just plug the charger into the wall, hook up the terminals and go about your business. The Battery Tender will charge your battery and once the full charge has been reached the Battery Tender will keep the battery at that level without overcharging it. Great product, Buy one!! October 28, 2014
Easy to use Installed the leads on the battery in only a couple minutes. Just plug the wall unit in when done riding and no need to worry about the battery for the next outing, no matter how long between rides. LED status lights give you the status of the charging cycle. October 6, 2014
Saves my Batteries I bought this to keep my batteries charged over the winter and I got it quickly and it works great. It has saved me from having to jump or even worse replace my battery. When the roads thaw my bikes are ready to go, a must have for anyone who lives in a place where they cannot ride in the winter, I would even go as far to say you should have one for each bike. September 15, 2014
Perfect battery baby sitter I finally bought 2nd one so I can leave it on the same machine and not have to move it around from bike to bike to lawnmower. And the new one has much brighter indicator lights making it easier to see from a distance. I may get a 3rd one! July 7, 2014
If you have a bike buy this Mine has been working faithfully for years and I have never had batteries that lasted so long. I've used this on my last 3 bikes and the difference is amazing. Currently I have a well functioning battery that is 7 years old! May 21, 2014
Everyone should own one! Had this on my battery all winter, and it kept the battery perfectly charged. Bike started right up in the spring! May 12, 2014
Everyone needs one of these. Frankly I'm surprised I went so many years without one of these. I used to hook up the cheap little alligator clips for my no brand charger under my seat every night in the driveway back in the days when every bike I owned had some type of charging issue. Now I pull into the garage, hook up to a pigtail and don't worry about whether or not I'm going to be stuck with no charge in the morning. I guess that's part of being an actual adult. May 12, 2014
Use it all the time This is a great product. I use it all the time, for the price there is no reason not to have one. I use one on my bike and one on my mower. Also, with the permanent attachment to the battery it makes it easy to plug into the wall for winter storage. I have the adapter and plug my USB devices into it during the riding season. May 5, 2014

A shopper asked: There is a port to connect with a charger. Does this charger have the proper lead for this mototcycle? The manual says NOT to charge the battery (unless thru the port) .That means taking off the seat,etc, etc. If it comes with the lead great, or include one if you fill this order,ok? Thanks lorin Jul 10, 2011

mmmpies: It doesn't - you'll have to buy a powerlet adapter if you want to plug in to the port. Note that if you go this route, there's a key on/off procedure you'll have to follow or the port will shut off and the battery won't receive a charge.

Anyway, I've had six BMWs, two with CANbus electronics whose manuals included the same disclaimer you mentioned. I was wary too, but after some research I found I was able to safely use the Battery Tender with it's included harness kit to charge directly to the battery, which I did. Note that Battery Tender ships two different harness kits; one with an in-line fuse, one without (I think the BT Jr. doesn't have the in-line fuse). I recommend only using the fused model.

BMW sells an OEM branded charger you can plug directly in to the factory powerlet, but many prefer the Battery Tender and think it's a better product. I'm one of them, as are quite a few good staffers I know at BMW dealerships around the country.

If you'd like more info, you'll find a lot of chatter on this topic on sites like ADVrider and other BMW specific forums - just do a Google search.

A shopper asked: Can you use a battery tender with a Shorai lithium battery?? May 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph B: I believe so. I have a small collection of bikes, and everything that is a rider I leave on this tender, the Yuasa 1.25 model, and the Battery Tender 4 bank multi.
About 3 bikes have a Shorai in them, and i havent noticed a difference. They get switched around at times, depending on what Im riding.
Check with Shorai just to be sure, Id hate to give you bad advice, and Im not a battery expert!

Reply to Joseph Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nicholas C: Yes, but you have to make sure to remove it from the charger once it is done charging. Lithium cells have lower self-discharge so keeping it on a "trickle charger" isn't generally necessary. See the Shorai website FAQ page for more info. May 13, 2014

A shopper asked: I need a battery tender to use on my bike. I have a 2008 Kawi zx10r. I like this one but i'm not sure which voltage to get. I assume this would work and the voltage should be 12V but can someone please confirm for me?

Thank you

Clint S: If it previously had a Deltran battery tender then this will plug right into the port underneath the passenger seat. If it was not a Deltran it's ok because this will come with a new port you can hook up to the battery and run up underneath the passenger seat, making it easy to connect and disconnect. Oh and yes 12v is the way to go, have one these for my 09 GSXR 750 and 07 R6, they work great! Feb 23, 2014

Andre D asked: Hi all, i ll be using this product in the UK where power is 240v. Will this charger work or does it work only with 120v? Dont want to buy it and burn it as soon as i plug it :). Thanks Oct 29, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Greg L: Andre,

Absolutely 120v only! I live in Germany. I bought two Juniors and plugged them into a 120 v converter. Both blew, but fortunately the manufacturer replaced them. The converter has worked well for 3 years with all other 120 v appliances. Then I bought the waterproof 800 - works well with all voltages - that's what you want!

LEROY B: There is a 240 volt version available. I use the charger in South Americe where the voltage is also 240v. However I have a 110v unit and I use a step down transformer.The 240v unit was not available when I purchased my charger. Dec 22, 2013

Cy S: You definitely cannot just plug it in. Zoom in on the picture, it says 120V @ 60hz. Not sure if you might have issues with a converter in the loop.

(Also, mine at home says 120VAC @ 60Hz 12W)

Matt Z: I ride so often during riding season I only use the battery tender when the bike is being stored during winter. I keep the battery in the basement plugged into the battery tender. You don't need anything extra for this to work on the ninja 300. Oct 27, 2014
