The Battery Tender Keeps Your Vehicle Batteries Optimally Powered
There is nothing more frustrating than heading out to your vehicle in the morning only to find your battery dead and your car unable to start as a result. To add insult to injury, a vehicle’s battery never dies when you were just heading out to run meaningless errands. It never fails that the morning your car battery decides to die is the morning you are late for work and have a big meeting to get to. The Battery Tender Plus 12V Battery Charger can help you avoid dead batteries so you never have to be late again thanks to your car. The Battery Tender Plus is designed for use with all lead-acid, flooded or sealed maintenance free batteries.
The battery tender runs through a four step charging system that includes initialization, bulk charge, absorption, and float. When the battery is fully charged the system automatically switches to a maintenance mode to hold the full charge without over-charging the battery. A number of other battery charger models are available from Battery Tender, but the 12 volt Battery Tender Plus model comes with many features that others in the company line do not possess.
An overwhelming majority of online reviewers had nothing but positive things to say about their battery float charger, but a small minority did experience issues with their models. Many of the issues experienced by those who did not approve of the Battery Tender can be attributed to faulty units, but a major reason for their poor experience overall was negative interaction with customer service. One reviewer mentioned poor performance in cold weather climates.
