    Just for curiosity, how much is the HD Battery Tender International version designed for 115/230 47-63Hz operation as reference? I think I saw one that could charge multiple bikes for $99 USD.

    I think JAFRUM is International. look them up on internet. I bought a Battery Tender from them for $20. Fast delivery too. Give them a try.

    It's called Optimate lll. If you google OPTIMATE3.COM you'll find out all about it.
    I bought mine for £20 off the guy when I bought the bike but any decent bike shop should have them - I think they are about £40 up here so maybe 50 Euro where you are. Also, check e bay
    BTW, interesting choice of user name for an Irishman!!!

    Thanks, as for my user name I am a transplanted Yank and the name came from a SciFi flick I saw years ago.

    Optimate 4 is the latest I think and it is a good tender. You can buy it on ebay for about £38 but the postage across the puddle to Limerick will be a bit extra. I'd go for that rather than version 3.
    Oxford do a decent one on their own label too.

    ebay - the friend of bikers who hate the shops :D
