Battery tender use

Does anybody out there use a battery tender? Just tried to start the tractor and the battery was dead. I'll take any battery recommendations for my BX1500 as well. Merry Christmas too all!

I've heard of the older ones "poofing" out around 10 years (the age of mine). I've also heard the newer ones poof out a lot quicker and some have blown batteries and caused fires.

A guy down the street lost his garage (and everything in it) when his Battery tender and/or the batter started a fire while charging an ATV.

I have since switched to the CTEK model as it's a lot newer design. I still use my old tender, but I don't leave it on for extended periods.
