    Yah but the BT Jr is 130 bucks less. For the kind of money the 128 costs I could just throw away the old dead battery and buy a new one each spring. Just a matter of taste and value.

    I also use the BT Jr on my truck, two massive batteries, and it keeps them up and running.

    There is a difference in a battery charger and a battery tender. To often people will try to use the tender as a charger and are disappointed in the results.

    I'll be using the following charger.
    OptiMate 4 Dual Program Battery Optimiser
    They are really popular in the UK and possibly the most used throughout the country.

    The wiring went into the SS last Friday, so I'll post some pictures soon.

    No 120V tap on your transformer? Then you'd have to use a 240V 50Hz model:

    1510: 12Volt 1.5 Amp Maintenance Charger/Desulfator

    2012: 12Volt 2 Amp (12V 2A) Charger/Maintainer/Desulfator

    2012-AGM : 12Volt 2 Amp (12V 2A) Charger/Maintainer/Desulfator For Optima, Odyssey, Polaris, Yuasa & Other High Performance Specialty 12 Volt Sealed AGM Lead-Acid Batteries

    Do not use an unfit model, it'll just go poorly in the end.

    Wished the US would smarten up and start using 240 volt, our electric bills would be so much less.
