Is there anything worse than finding that your motorcycle has a dead battery on the first warm day of spring. Keep the batteries on your recreational vehicles powered up and ready to go while in storage, or over the winter, so they are ready to roll when you are. Use the Battery Float Charger for the maintenance of wet or gel cell batteries that are stored or used periodically in boats, cars, snowmobiles, ATV’s and tractors. The Battery Float Charger prevents self-discharge of the battery, while maintaining and extending the life of rechargeable 120-volt batteries. The Battery Float Charger maintains a battery charge for batteries rated from 5 to 125 amp-hours, by providing a 13.5 VDC max output. Other types of chargers provide a strong, rapid charge but tend to boil out liquids and decay electrodes. The Battery Float Charger is intended only to keep a fully charged battery from losing its charge. It will not work to charge a battery that is discharged or damaged. Check the voltage of the battery to be charged. Do not use charger if the battery voltage is less than 9.6-volts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect For My Motorcycle Battery I bought this for my motorcycle battery cause it died when i was trying to start it and a friend told me to take it out in the winter time or the battery could crack from freezing of the electrolyte if it not charged, so i took it out and put it in my basement with this trickle charger on it and it has kept it charged since i got it February 16, 2010

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to use good product for the money shipped and arrived before expected date. will not hesitate to shop on line with home depot thank you February 21, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well...for now. GREAT bargain-- especially w/ FREE SHIPPING!! Just one prob: unit DOES NOT shut off when battery is completely charged, as advertised... no matter how long I leave it on either my scooter or car, BOTH LIGHTS STAY ON. Also, it stays VERY warm-- which at best means it is drawing power needlessly, and at worst will soon burn itself out... so we'll see. September 16, 2011
