I just read through the battery topic in the owner's manual and didn't see anything that would inhibit me from using a battery tender on the KRX during the winter. I've used BatteryMinderPlus units on other winter stored machinery for years without issue. They work with several different kinds of batteries and I don't see why one wouldn't work with the KRX. Your experience, thoughts and opinions on this topic are welcome.

I use one when I’m not driving mine. It will make your battery last a lot longer.

I use one daily. Hook it up to a timer and run it an hour or two a day

Huh, guess I'm the odd one out here. I never use a battery tender of any sort on any of my things. My atv will sit for months at a time and fire right up on the rare occasion that I start it. No battery tender and 10% ethanol gas in it.... ;)

Post from another forum. It describes plugging a battery tender into a 12v power port using one of these:

Does anyone do it this way? I've always used the ring connector pigtail to the battery.

It will work as long as the socket is always hot, not keyed.

I have one setup, works great.
