so the stupid Battery Tender failed, and i didn't know b/c when i checked the bike a week ago, the light was green. then when i went to take the bike out Monday, it was red. put it on another charged battery and sure enough, it was still red. forgetting how old it is, maybe 7 yo. and put the other tender on this bike, and sure enough it was green and charging. but the bike is barely getting any juice now. light turned on after 15 hours.
have considered removal and charging in the house (it's been raining daily since i discovered the failed tender) but battery is about 6yo and if completely discharged, am think i just need a new one. i just hate messing with them though. Lead based Yuasa needs you to pour acid in them already.
anyone using lithium in settings with cold weather successfully? i'd love to try one but if it is quirky i'd rather not. so am needing both a tender and new battery.
ideas welcome - and neighbors in an around the DC area, feel free to come to my rescue.
