UTV & ATV Trickle Charger & Battery Tender Devices
UTV/ATV Battery Tender or Trickle Charger?
Are these two devices similar means to the same end? Yes — but that doesn’t mean they’re interchangeable. The former is all about metering and maintaining sufficient voltage without overcooking your battery. If you’re looking for the best battery tender for an ATV or UTV, it’s the one with built-in computer processors that’ll cut the juice when appropriate. A UTV or ATV trickle charger is a full-on battery charger you can use to bring a slightly sub-par battery back up to sufficient voltage. Think of battery tenders as a stop-gap over long winters of inactivity while a 4 wheeler battery charger is a less-sophisticated tool to really bring the power back on from borderline low levels.
If you still have questions about getting a charger, which really is an essential investment that can quickly get your ride up and running again, call our Gear Geeks! While you’re here, be sure to check out our UTV and ATV batteries so a back-up is just sitting on the shelf in your shop.
