Gel vs AGM: Not Quite the Battle of the Ages, But Nice to Know

More often than not AGM Batteries are mistakenly identified as Gel Cell Batteries. Both batteries have similar traits; such as being non spillable, deep cycle, may be mounted in any position, low self discharge, safe for use in limited ventilation areas, and may be transported via Air or Ground safely without special handling. more...

How to Pick the Right Battery Charger

There are certainly other factors in selecting a battery charger, and it would be difficult to cover them all, but here a few. Input voltage, generally for use in foreign countries. Exposure to elements, i.e. would you benefit from a waterproof charger? Perhaps you will need a charger that doubles as a power supply for an RV or some other application. Often people will need to charge multiple batteries simultaneously, so multiple bank chargers may be needed. more...

Do You Ship Batteries and Battery Chargers to Canada?

We are limited in how we can ship, based on Canadian law. The law forbids the transport of batteries via the Postal Service. We can ship powersport batteries to Canada via UPS, but as most Canadians are aware, UPS will bill the receiver for all customs duties and fees. If you are interested in ordering from us and having it delivered to Canada, please be sure to include your phone number in the order. We cannot ship international orders without a valid customer phone number. more...

Does Starting My Motorcycle in the Winter Charge the Battery?

While starting your bike every few weeks in the winter may be good for the mechanics of it, it could end up harming your battery. Your vehicle's charging system does not truly ramp up until it gets far above idle, sometimes as high as 5000rpm! Unless you hold'er wide open for 10 or 15 minutes, you may not get enough of a charge. You either need to keep it on a decent maintenance charger, such as a Battery Tender, or you need to suck it up and go for a 20+ mile ride every couple weeks! more...

How Often Should I Charge My Motorcycle, ATV or Boat Battery?

You should either charge your battery every 30 days or so, or consider getting a smart charger to maintain your battery all the time. These new smart chargers will hold the voltage at its prime voltage, while reducing the current to almost nil, thus preventing overcharge even when left on for months at a time. A battery will self-discharge over time, even while not in use or connected to anything, thus the benefit of constant maintenance charger. more...

What Is The Best Battery Charger For My Motorcycle Battery?

That depends on the size and voltage of your battery. For the sake of popularity, we’ll cover 12-volt Sealed Lead Acid Motorcycle and Powersport Batteries. If you have a small battery, under 20 AH(Amp/Hrs), the Battery Tender Junior may be the best choice. If you have a larger battery, you may want to use a slightly higher amp charger in order to not overwork your charger. For those larger Motorcycle / ATV batteries that fall within the 21-30 AH range we recommend the Noco Genius G-1100, or if you really want to prolong your batteries life the Battery Minder 1510 is a great desulfating charger for any powersport battery. more...

Will I Need to Charge My Motorcycle, ATV, or Snowmobile Battery When it Arrives?

When you order an AGM maintenance free battery from BatteryStuff.com, it is first filled, charged, and load tested before it is shipped out. This process allows for you to receive your battery ready to install and ride! more...

Will a Small Charger Maintain a Large Bank of Batteries?

Quick answer: No. When you are dealing with a bank of batteries that is collectively larger than a car battery (max 100 amp/hours), you should crunch the numbers to find the ideal charger for your situation. Normal static power drain on a brand-new battery can be as high as 2-3% a month, which in the case of a 1000-amp battery pack (total) would translate to roughly 30 amps. more...

Can I Use a Solar Battery Charger to Keep My RV Battery Charged?

Yes! You first must calculate how much power you used, so you know how much you need to replace. Keep in mind that solar only charges when the sun is shining on the panel, which is roughly 6-7 hours per day average. To charge a discharged RV sized battery with a solar panel in 6 hours would take a couple 100 watt+ panels. more...

How Do I Keep My RV Battery Charged When in Storage?

If your starting battery is going dead in about a month while your vehicle is in storage, it would be fair to assume you are using about 60-75 amps (typical RV sized starting battery) in that period. You will need to figure out how much drain you have and then estimate your drain per day. All that is need from here is to select a panel that will produce the right amount of amps. more...
