While I hold less than zero foot in the game, I find this thread fascinating. While I've never found myself in need of a battery charger/maintainer in my day to day life, I did find myself needing one several years back when I bought my CB900C. I knew I wouldn't be riding it regularly, and that...
I’ve tried it with and without extensions. They do make a difference, but the noco still seems to go to float way too soon. I have the 10 amp version, however, which will worsen the problem. A smaller unit wont incur as much v drop.
I’ve switched to a ctek, which doesn’t push as many amps, but does effectively put a better finishing charge on the battery.
