2 years ago I purchased a battery charger, batteryminder 12248, that will charge, desulfate and then trickle charge as needed. It has yet to damage a battery. It is always connected to a battery. Once it's done desulfating one battery, I move it to another battery. I have over 20 batteries, half of which are mower batteries, some tractors, cars, truck, 2 marine. My oldest battery is 7 years old. I haven't bought a new battery since I bought the charger, 2 years. In the past I was buying 2-4 batteries a year. I also bought a battery conductivity tester. It shows all my batteries are in good health.

My advice is buy yourself a Christmas present. I would highly recommend a charger like I got. Then you won't have to worry about damaging a battery, which I've done with the old school manual chargers.

I am with George all the way. Buy yourself a Battery Tender or Battery Minder type charger and it will pay it's way for a long time to come. The batteries that came on my diesel truck December 2003 were installed on a tractor and a field truck summer 2008 and are both still going strong. The battery that came on the 3010 Mule finaly weakened after 7 years. I have got 4 battreies that went bad within 1 or 2 years but most have done better than expected. Like George,my 1.5 amp battery tender is switched from battery to battery in almost constant use. I have 2 larger chargers that I use to recharge large batteries if they have been discharged more than 50% but the Tender is always used to top off.
