I have used a couple of other brands and I think this is the best tender.
I use this battery tender on a 2005 BMW that is not driven often enough to keep the battery charged.
I used a diehard battery maintainer that actually was discharging the car battery, I then put it on the motorcycle and it worked fine.
I had a Schumacher battery maintainer that I bought at ******* and when I got back home from a three week trip the car battery was completely dead.
We were looking for a battery tender and saw this one was affordable. It has great reviews everywhere and we are using it with no problem. I will be interested to see if this keeps our brand new battery in better shape over the long haul.
I bought the battery tender first and it was good but die hard I liked much better it charges at 2amps then goes into maintainer mod battery tender charges at 1.25amps

I have two of these units?the first maintains the lawnmower battery and the second a summer only car. You cannot go wrong with this unit as it?s designed to recharge, top-off and maintain during inconsistent use of the battery.
This is a great little charger. It's very portable and does not take up much space at all. I use it to keep my ATV charged at all times and have not had any issues whatsoever with this unit.

Charger worked fine on first use, but died the second time around. Returned to store, spoke with a friendly, smiling customer service rep, received a no-hassle full refund which I immediately applied toward a larger unit. Great customer service like this is why I keep coming back to the Big K (And go out of my way to avoid the Big W).
NO MORE FRANTIC CALLS TO AAA! REPLACED BATTERY SEVERAL TIMES IN MY OLDER CAR -- SERVICE TECHS WERE UNABLE TO DETERMINE WHAT WAS CAUSING IT TO DRAIN WHEN NOT USED FOR 2-3 DAYS. THIS WAS THE SOLUTION.
