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.

RE: Battery Tender Pigtail
I havemine on the right side behind the oil tank. Fits into the gap between the frame and the tank.
If this is a "Free" country...why does it cost so much to live here?
