Noco Genius
« on: August 03, 2018, 02:57:14 PM »

Thought I'd try one of these.

The bike doesn't get as much use as it should, so now the battery is nearly flat!
I like the idea of this, as it also comes with a lead and plug that you leave permanently connected to the battery and just tuck the plug behind a fairing or panel. You can then at any time just connect the plug to the charger in seconds, which then either charges or maintains as necessary.

Yeh I saw that one mate.
I just decided to get the cheaper one. It'll still do the job, just takes a little longer.
I should have it tomorrow. I'll let you know if its any good.

How much are they?

A new LiFePO4 battery is about $200.

Last basically forever.

I use a battery conditioner something like that one over the winter, when I don't use the bike - works great, never had battery problems.  I don't leave it on all the time, I just run it for a day or two occasionally, like over the weekend when I'm around the house, always starts 'first kick' in the Spring.

Good thing to have.

I paid 30 delivered, Amazon prime mate.
As previously mentioned, one reason for purchase was to keep the battery in good nick over the winter, as the bike will see little use.

Well,

I can say I like this thing. Small & unobtrusive and only gets warm - not hot.
A tip though, buy the extension cable for an extra 12 (I did as a precaution). The supplied cable which goes to the bike is not very long, so you'd be limited for distance from bike to socket. For some reason, they advise you don't use a mains extension lead and plug it into a wall outlet only.

Charge time for my battery from flat is circa 8 hours - so quite reasonable imo.
