Re: Battery/Trickle Charger Help

There is only one to consider ... "Battery Tender" (regular size not Jr.)
Just keep it plugged in whenever you have it parked in the garage, it's smart enough to know the state of the battery and adjust itself so it never harms your battery.
Oh, it comes with a short cable and adapters so you can permanently mount it to your battery and simply plug it in whenever you need, so you don't need to move your top and undo the battery cover every time you plug it in.
Alternately you could also connect the small cord to Grd and the Brown wires at the fuse block under the hood if you wish.

Thanks for George and his wiring efforts, my MGB is back on theroad.

Unfortunately the ever rapidly shorter sunsets do not give meenough

time to go tooling around town after work to exercise the car veryoften.

Weekends are somewhat in conflict with other commitments not fitfor

such a little ride, so too many lost daylight hours there too.

Soon enough the Winter and Salt Gods will simply hide the carinside

until the Groundhog says it’s safe for my “B” to see its own shadowagain.

 

So, can anybody suggest a good, reliable or proven winner for aBattery/Trickle

Charger they have used or have had good success with keeping theirhibernating

batteries healthy over the low usage months?  Any suggestionsas to how often

sitting batteries should be hooked up and charged or are thereother tricks to

keeping the battery juiced up during the cold months?

 

Thanks for your help and advice,
