Battery tender, battery charger, trickler?

Left my new bike in accessory mode over night and jumped it to crank it up. Came out the next day and was dead but sounded better than the first day.

Should I get a battery tender and can that charge it or do I get a trickler/charger.

I like the idea of leaving the tender plugged in when the Harley isn't in use.

Grab a tender, it doesn't hurt to have one handy. They are a cheap and great tool, if you can remember to hook it up. Attaching it to the dead battery will charge it overnight.

Think you need a tender for your MH account! Where you been? Hadn't seen your posts in forever.

My bikes stay plugged in to Battery Tender Jr's all the time I'm not on them. Highly recommend it, your batteries will last longer.
