The Delran Battery Tender people who make the slick little maintainer for ATV's, pickups, etc, is now making a 6V one that would be the hot deal for our 8N's. If anyone's interested, they retail for about $34 but right now I ordered one from Amazon for only $23.99.

I also have a Sears Die-Hard battery maintainer connected to my 12 volt 8N with Electronic Ignition. It works very well to keep the 8N 12 volt battery up to par when I don't use it for several weeks. The battery is 6 years old and I feel the battery maintainer/tender extends the life of the battery. I have three other battery tenders...one connected to my John Deere garden tractor, one to my 12 volt gas engine golf cart, and one to my 1996 Tahoe that I drive very little.

You can't go wrong using these battery tenders.

Yep, I agree. I mainly posted for us 6Volt guys, looks like there's not too many chargers made nowdays for 6V systems. Out of desperation I previously got one from the local farm supply but it doesn't shut off automatically and maintain like all the little Deltran Battery Tenders do.
I have three other battery tenders...
I've had the Battery Tender Plus for about a year which I rotate between my diesel pickup and ATV and an '88 T-Bird I need to get on the ball and sell. The battery in my Polaris has surprised me, original from 2005 and I more or less neglected it during the dead of winter year after year. Still good but I just changed it yesterday to be on the safe side.

The battery tender I bought at Wally world is capable of 6 or 12. I have 3 and need 2 more but I plug mine into a timer to run for 15 or 30 minutes instead of staying on full time. There have been cases where they failed and overcharged batteries ruining them in the past.
