  • Now the Harbor Freight chargers just have hardwired clamps on them so I cut those off and use a 2 wire trailer connector so that I can interchange all maintainer between all bikes/atvs/karts/vehicles. They interchange perfectly with the battery tender pigtails.....see picture below:

    Would that battery tender be a good idea for a ride-on mower as well, or should we not bother? We had a terrible time trying to start it up in March and I'm wondering if that may have been the problem. Basically its a good idea with anything that has a battery and sits occasionally. I have a 2006 Chevy Equinox that rarely get used.....sits for 6 months sometimes and I have a battery tender pigtail on it and plug it in often. The thing about lawn mower batteries is they seem to be to be so cheap that no matter WHAT I do I cant get more than a year out of one. Last year I was determined to get my moneys worth and I took the battery out of my mower and brought it inside. I charge it 3 times throughout the year and brought it back inside. It was still junk come spring. Maybe I need to stop buying the cheap WalMart batteries. It definitely isnt going to hurt the battery any.

  • I was thinking that I would just plug it right into the battery tender pigtail and be done.... well, I'm not seeing any such pigtail. Am I blind or was my salesman "confused"? I don't mind attaching the included pigtail, but don't want to mess with it if I don't have to.

    I just lived in Germany for the last 4 years where I purchased the OEM charger (220V input) for just over $100. Now that I'm back in the US, I'm appalled at the price they're asking for it here (110V). I did, however, see the Battery Tender pigtail to Powerlet adapter chord, and I already have multiple BT Jrs.

    I’ve hooked up and powered my girlfriend Jann’s (Tourmaster) heated gloves in this manner many times with no problem whatsoever. I generally couple-up the assembly before I mount up (taking a few loops around the rear highway bar adjacent to where my Battery Tender pigtail hangs), and hand the gloves to Jann after she climbs on board.

In other words, if in lieu of installing the COAX Quick Connect assembly that accompanied your heated clothing, you’d rather tap into your bike’s battery and charging system power via your existing Battery Tender pigtail – we’ve got the adapter for you!
