Anyone have one of these?

I see they have several models and have the quick disconnect you can leave attached to your battery.

Looking for comments on longevity and performance.

The one below looks like its the most suitable to keep everything i have in the shop ready to go. even has 25 foot leads available.

4-Bank International Charger - USA/ Western

Hemisphere

$249.95

Buddy of mine uses them on his 350X and on his lawnmower.

what is this? just a 4 way 12v battery charger?

How does he like it? and more importantly how long has he had it?

It's more than just a battery charger. It's a battery tender. You connect it while your bike is parked and it keeps sulfation from occuring in the battery and it makes sure it's always ready.

This one just happens to be 4-way.

he likes it. not sure how long he's had it. never has a problem starting his mower the next year.

long term parking perhaps? i've never had a problem but i guess like he said, using it for a lawnmower over the winter so the battery wouldnt die before summer wouldnt be a bad idea.

I have one on my Harley, I have had it about 4 years with no problems. Putting one on the Brute soon.

I got the battery Tender Jr. i think's the name of it! I love it, i got it on my Arctic cat, suzuki motorcycle, zero turn mower, and tractor. I swap it out ever couple weeks when i'm not using them. I have the quick connect's on everyone one of them.
