Battery Tender Junior 4.8 5 69 69
Perfect product to suit my needs. My 2014 Ninja 650 ABS came with a port that connects to the battery terminals as stock. This tender had the connection that I didnt need to get under the seat and to the battery. It was perfect! It has a long cord and easy to read led light. April 10, 2015
Best Bang for your Buck! just finished my first season with this tender and it works great! comes with everything you need,does not take up space in your garage, easy quick connects, and I feel like they should be charging more for its capabilities! March 23, 2015
Mighty Mite Like the indcator lights and the different battery connection options. Quality product. March 16, 2015
Good price, great product. Easy to use. Won't overcharge your battery. I prefer this to a trickle charger. I would definitely recommend! March 16, 2015
does exactly what it should! Does exactly what it's intended to do! Harness is a savior. Look no further than this. February 9, 2015
Set and Forget This is the best purchase you can make to preserve the life and health of your battery. It comes with alligator clips as well as leads designed to attach directly to the battery's terminals. Once connected, just plug in to charge. Also, the SAE connection provides many opportunities for accessories including USB for electronic devices. January 26, 2015
Works Well Works as advertised. This is my 3rd tender for my 3rd bike and in three years i have not had any problems December 29, 2014
Great investment! I bought the Junior in December 2004 and kept my Gold Wing battery plugged in to it anytime I wasn't riding. The result: The battery lasted 8 years, 10 months. The local Honda dealer's service adviser said she had never seen a battery last anywhere close to that. I also have a V-Twin model that I use for a riding mower and an ATV, and their batteries still seem as strong as ever. I would definitely recommend this product if you want a long-lasting, dependable battery. December 26, 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!
Jun 17, 2014
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)

A S asked: would you use this everytime the bike isnt being used? and if not how long between rides until you need to? also do i need to buy anything extra to hook to a ninja 300? Oct 25, 2014

Howie C: During ridding season and you only ride on weekends it would be safe to say your battery should hold up by not putting it on the charger during the week. A good battery will hold its own and its really how much draw your bike produces with the i.e. clock and other continuous running goodies it has. I have a x-country tour with the works so about every other week or two I put the charger on it for a couple days or so and it works out so Im not running the juice all the time, but my battery is always charged. AND REMEMBER..........a clean battery will also prolong a batteries life........even a dusty battery will create draw between the two post!!! Nov 3, 2014
Reply to Howie Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

A S: And it's pretty easy to take the battery off? But say you only ride on the weekends during riding season would it be fine to not charge? Oct 27, 2014
