    battery tender + never leave a bat on the cement floor without a board under it..

    I dont know why but it kills battery's for some reason any time i left one on the bare cement floor it died soon after.

    its probably because the the cement floor is really cold in the winter

    this is false, an old wives tale originating from when the early batteries casings were made from porous materials.

    and I also have to buy a new quad battery every year, even after removing and storing inside. the original battery lasted 5 years. these interstate replacements are junk. and only 6 months warranty....how convenient.

    Same thing happened to my 450x... then i got a battery tender... will never over charge... just keep it plugged in all winter... when the unit sences the battery draining in charges it... basically a trickle charger with a brain so you never have to worry about over charging

    so true........ Also is the top of your batteries dirty?? If so, then electricity will always find a way to cut through oil/grease/dirt etc and cause a path to drain the battery. I pull my rv batteries and quad batteries every year, and never a problem yet......
