What I like about the little jr. rig besides inexpensive price, is that it does not boil the water out of the battery like the bigger units do. The battery charger built into my new Columbus 320RS did just that. So 2-3 times a year I will have to pull the caps and add distilled water to my battery.
If you need a higher amp charge rate the jr. wont cut it. For overnight slow charge and maintenance is all the little jr. is good for. It also does battery conditioning and works well for the new AGM style batteries.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Ebay I hadn't thought of. Unfortunately shipping to Canada is more than the price of the battery tender jr. Taxes and duty (maybe) on top. Warranty issues too maybe.
Skidoo store is a great idea, one is real close by, even know the owner! Will check it out tomorrow.
Still if battery tender jr costs more than Motomaster is it worth the price differential or not. Specs I discovered on line for Motomaster claim it won't boil the battery.
