What battery tender are you guys using? What brand and/or model would be helpful. I need to buy one, but there are loads of them and I can't make a decision. Thanks for the help.

Ebay. Don't overthink it. A tender is just a completely dirt *** cheap circuit board on a regular cheap *** AC to DC brick and a wire.

Mine came with the Eyelet connectors and the Jumper ends that plug into the X PLug on the charger, same plug is Pool Vac also.
As for anything off Ebay, my Walmart trickle charger fried my battery when it didn't shut off and it was more than the Genius 1100.
X Plug

Eyelet

The Eyelet is the only thing under my hood. It is time to put it back on now also.

I use this one. It has two different ends that just plug together. One end has alligator clips and the other one has eyelets so that you can connect it to the battery. Just unplug and go for a drive. I have one on my wife's car also because in the winter she does not use the car everyday and we have had issues with the battery draining. I mounted the plug in the grill and she can easily unplug it when she needs to and plug it back in when she gets home. I think that I got mine at Amazon and Walmart has them also.

I don't trust battery tenders to not overcharge or dry out the battery. So I plug them in once a week or so, let it charge and when full I unplug. But that's me...

It’s honestly a concern of mine as well. Up to this point, I had been able to take mine out for a spin for a good 30 to 40 minutes. Last year, I had some really long idle sessions and I could tell the battery was struggling. I really don’t want to get her out for a drive if I’m not able to do a full wash if the roads were salty. Since I’m having surgery this time, I know for sure it’ll be idle for 8 weeks (or more depending on the roads), so I’m ready to give one a try.
