Edit: For those considering this product... It is not a battery charger. It is for maintaining fully charged batteries. There are some negative reviews from folks that did not realize what they were buying.
I unpacked the 2nd 021-0123 Battery Tender Junior, intended for my motorcycle, plugged it in and it lasted maybe 15 seconds and did the same "clicking" thing and died. The replacement process went smooth but I have not received the new ones yet.
But let's first get back to basics: what is a float charger, and why is it needed?
Lead-acid batteries, of the type used in cars and motorcycles, lose a part of their charge over time just sitting when they aren't even connected to something. When left in a bike that has a clock or radio memory circuit in it that constantly draws power even when the bike is off, that loss of charge is even faster.
Lead-acid batteries "like" to remain at full charge at all times. A battery that is kept at full charge will have a much longer service life than a battery that is left sitting with less than a full charge.
I used to go through a lot of batteries - my motorcycle batteries would last between one and two years before they needed replacement. With multiple motorcycles (not to mention other battery powered things like a generator, snow blower, etc.) this gets expensive!
I figured I would put a trickle (float) charger on my main GL1100 battery to help keep it fully charged. I bought a cheap trickle charger from Harbor Freight, for under $10. I hooked it up to the battery and left it sitting overnight. The next day, to my utter surprise, the battery was dead! The cheap trickle charger, with no intelligence in it and no way of turning off when the battery was charged, overcharged the battery, destroying it! I could charge it fully, but its plates were sulfated, and it would no longer produce enough current to start the bike. This was an expensive lesson - and taught me about the false economy of Harbor Freight float chargers!
So it was with a bit of trepidation that I tried the Battery Tender Jr. - I didn't really want to throw another $100 down the drain for another new battery. The difference with the Battery Tender products is that they are intelligent: they have computers inside that analyze the state of charge of the battery to which they are connected, and alter their output to adjust: Initialization, Bulk Charge Mode, Absorption Mode, Float Mode).
The result: I'm still using that battery five years later, and it still works like it is brand new. I was so impressed that I bought more: I now own five Battery Tender Jr.'s, and they are connected to all of my bikes and devices, 24/7. Every time I park my bike, I plug it in. I have not had a single battery go bad in the five years since I have started using Battery Tenders - and every battery still performs like it is brand new.
The Battery Tender Jr. comes with a 12 foot cord and a plug. This plug then attaches to one of two included connectors: a set of alligator clips, for temporary attachment to a battery, or a set of ring terminals, for permanent attachment. I use the ring terminals, then feed the other end of the connector up through the bike somewhere where it can be hidden. In my wife's PC800, the connector hides behind the right passenger footpeg. In my GL1500, it hides in the left passenger cubby. When I park the bike, I simply flip open the cubby, plug in the Battery Tender, and I know the battery is protected and maintained.
The Battery Tender is designed to be pretty much indestructible. You can hook it up backwards to the battery, and nothing will happen. You can start the bike with it connected, no problem, it simply turns itself off. It's spark proof, and has an indicator light that flashes and changes color to tell you the state of your battery, and what it is doing to manage it. It has a five year warranty, which I have not had to use.
The Battery Tender works great on standard flooded wet-cell lead-acid batteries, as well as AGM (absorption glass mat) batteries. If you have a gel-cell battery, there is a different version that has programming to work properly with them.
And you can now get accessories that plug into the Battery Tender vehicle-side connector when the Battery Tender is not connected. These provide USB charging outputs and 12 volt cigarette lighter-style power ports to allow you to plug your electronic devices into your vehicle.

Overall, this is one of my favorite products, they work amazingly well, keep your batteries in top shape, and cost less than a quarter of the cost of a single new battery. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I travel a lot for work, so my car is parked at home for 2-3 weeks every month. I drive a BMW, and the electronics draw the battery down while it's parked. It will start after 2 weeks but not after 3 if no one runs the engine. So I picked up a battery tender junior and I've been very happy with it. It's small enough to tuck in the trunk, and the detachable leads are a great feature - I leave them attached to my car's jumping posts under the hood, so it takes all of a few seconds to connect or disconnect.
It's kept my battery in great shape. In fact I've gained a few tenths of a volt both with and without the engine running, which is pretty fantastic considering my battery is 4 years old. I run a couple aftermarket amps, an obd2 wifi dongle, and a radar detector, which I know is taxing on my car's electrical device, so this guy gives me some peace of mind. And it's a steal for the price... it's a half to a third the price of a decent trickle charger, and it's better for my battery which is going to save me money over time. Very happy with this purchase.
In my opinion, the best feature of the Battery Tender trickle chargers is that most of them have split cables with capped connectors in the middle, and the way they hook up to the battery and ground is with ring terminals, so you can effectively connect the battery side and leave it hooked up permanently, and just connect the two halves of the cable when the vehicle is stored.
Remove your car's positive battery terminal, pull the tension bolt out of the clamp, add the BT Jr's positive cable's ring terminal to the clamp, put the bolt back through and reinstall. Connect the BT Jr's negative ring terminal to a good ground (an existing body ground in the engine bay, or in my case the trunk is ideal), plug the two halves of the cble to each other, and plug the brick into an outlet. Takes like 5 minutes, and when you are ready to take your vehicle out of storage, unplug the brick, unplug the two halves of the cable from each other, slide on the attached rubber caps, and you're ready to go. Being able to just leave it connected permanently is such a great feature for something like this meant specifically for summer vehicles or motorcycles. 100% recommended for ease of installation, good build quality, and very reasonable price.
The ATV battery was approx, 50% depleted - the battery tender brought it up to a full charge within 2-days and has maintained it there for the past week (Note: the battery is outside in below freezing weather). I have the battery tender in a weather protected compartment.
I used to use a more expensive CTEK unit for my Buick, but it was really a waste of it's more advanced features sitting on float for 99% of it's time.
So when vehicle get's stored for winter, I usually plug the CTEK to the battery first for an overnight charge to ensure a nice full charge. Then I switch over to the Battery Tender to keep it on float for the winter months.
So far, no complaints, works as expected.
I would have preferred that it wasn't a brick style adapter, and actually had a cord coming out of it with a normal plug (like the CTEK units do), but not taking off any stars for that, since it was not advertised as such.
Con el battery tender cuando se que no la voy a usar en una semana o más la dejo conectada, hasta el momento voy para 3 años con la actual batería y se siente como el primer día.
Imagino que lo mismo puede ser para pequeños tractores que solo se usan por temporada o incluso alguna batería automotriz que requiere mantenerse cargada.
