just a heads up folks,. I have used tenders off and on along time, and till this past yr never had a problem
BUT this past summer I had a tender on a skid steer, parked for a few weeks, when to use it and found a major mess of problems, tender WAY over charged battery, and??
then tender died
so far I have spent a few hundred bucks replacing things that got fried on the skid steer and its still down
and as many THINK< were doing ourselves a favor having a tender on them, when , for me, I could have bought a new battery every yr for a few yrs with what this tender going bad is costing me and tender was about a yr old and Brand name maker tender not a cheap made one
I bought 3 at same time and a second one when tested was also over charging things(15+ volts) so have stopped using the third one ~
contacted maker, was very helpful at first contact,as was still under warranty, and then when I told them the costs I am having, from it over charging things, they stopped taking calls from me and will NOT return a email either!
was a schumacher battery tender , if anyone cares to know the brand name here,
very disappointed in them to say the least, and find it rather rude to NOT return a call or email, after they said they would be getting back to me, first contact went nice, and then they just like refused to talk to me since and I never was mad or rude with them at all!
they even offered to send me a free tender, after I was to tell them what all was wrong, and been 6+ weeks now and not a return call even though I left several messages at a number and extension they gave me to call them back at! to report my damages!
bunch of BS I guess from them and won't be buying any more of there products!
