When you are getting ready to put your motorcycle in storage for an extended period of time there are some things that need to be done. We are going to focus on keeping your battery charged and in good shape for the length it is in storage. WeatherTech has developed a new product that is specifically for long term storage. You can keep this charger connected for months at a time without worry about the battery. It will ensure that when the times comes after being in storage for a long time the battery will be as good as new without the normal issues of having no charge or boiling the battery.
The WeatherTech Battery Charger doesn't just constantly pump current in to the battery. That is a bad thing when you are storing for a long time without any use. This charger monitors the battery level and only applies the needed charge. When the battery is fully charged it shuts off. Since this will be plugged in for months at a time the charger is also a surge protector. This will prevent power surges from destroying your battery.
The charger uses a 4 step process:
Step 1 - Desulfation (Revives the battery)
Step 2 - Bulk (Constant current charge)
Step 3 - Absorption (Constant voltage achieves full battery charge)
Step 4 - Pulse (Charges sent out to maintain fully charged battery)
There is another safety feature built in is there will not be any current flowing unless there is a proper connection. This will keep you and anyone else around the safe as well as the vehicle and battery This mean there will be no shorting out or arcing if there was a bad connection.
