Deltran Battery Tender

I just bought a dual Deltran Battery Tender to maintain the batteries on my 07 as I hardly drive it.

The question for you that may have these, the alligator clips are really small, have any of you who have used these had any problems with them?

why are you not using the quick disconnect. you connect it to the battery and then just plug it in... never have to worry about the clips falling off.. works great

So, you just connect those and leave them on all the time?, just roll them up next to the each battery? Where do you ground yours?

All mine are hooked right to the terminals of the battery. Just secure it somewhere when not in use.

Not driving it is a sure way to have turbo problems. These trucks hate to sit around.
