battery chargers

What battery charger are you using to maintain your battery over the winter?

Ctek is an advertiser on the forum ... any reviews on that one? Battery Tender is the other obvious one out there.

Opinions would be appreciated.

Battery Tender Plus. I can't compare them to other brands because I've only ever used Battery Tender. They work great for me.

I like the BatteryMINDer Charger/Maintainer/Desulfator 1.3 Amp, 12 Volt, Model# 12117 from Northern Tool. Keep one on both bikes and the mower.

I bought one at Wal mart and it's been working fine for well over a year. It was about $18 and came with the same pigtail as you find on all the HD models.
