Battery charger for camp

Any recommendations on a battery charger. Need one to use on the 4wheeler, lawn tractor, farm tractor, game feeder, truck..
lead acid or lithium, reasonably priced.
Thanks for any info
(Some one recommended a Genius brand, but not sure which one.)

Re: Battery charger for camp

Are you maintaining them or just wanting a regular charger ?

Exactly what I was thinking if they're' draining when he's away from camp . I have one for my riding mower and one for the SXS . They have worked great for 12 years .

Re: Battery charger for camp

I guess i need a regular charger. I can't afford to a charger on all 6 lead acid batteries that i have plus there is no power to the barn where we keep most of the equipment. Should i disconnect the batteries if I won't be up at the cabin for a month or 2> (winter)

I would . If possible , take them with you and charge them at home . That many batteries could get way more expressive than a charger if you have to keep replacing them . A friend has multiple machines in his garage and has a large Battery Tender that has seperate leads to each machine .

Re: Battery charger for camp

If your not familiar with the Battery Tender concept , it stays connected to the battery when NOT in use and only turns on when the battery voltage drops below a certain number . When it reaches a full charge , it turns itself off again till needed . They keep batteries in good condition for much longer lives than hitting them with a regular charger every so often . In my experiences anyway .

Re: Battery charger for camp

Does anyone have any experience with the solarpowered version? Not at camp from Dec to april. Would like to keep a charge on the quad. Barn has power but we don't want to leave the power on that long unattended

I put two on last fall. No complaints. The one I was primary concerned about was on a 15 year old Honda that has had winter battery problems in the past. None this past winter. Likely getting a third this summer.
