I would were these.
copied this post from another thread since it belongs here as wellI did not want to run the 150' extension cord to my shed so I could run my battery tender this winter. I was always concerned that someone or some animal would unplug it or chew through the cord. So I bit the bullet and bought a solar battery tender. Its low wattage so it wont charge a dead battery but for the last month it has kept my V-Star 650's battery at 100%....And it has the tender connection already attached along with interchangeable cigarette lighter adaptor and alligator clips.
This is what I bought...
Of course your mileage may vary but I'm delighted with my $29.95 purchase. The only possible downside is the solar panel cord is only 6' long so if you need to place the panel further away you will need to but an extension cord.
