So last night I broke down and went out and bought a new AGM battery for the Sportsman 400. I picked up a "Road Runner" branded "Premium AGM Battery" from my local Mills Fleet Farm (it's a Tractor / Fleet Supply type store). Now my question is..... Will my current battery tender/maintainer work or do I need to purchase a special/different type of charger for this AGM batery? :dunno: I've tried to research this and found mixed results.... so I wanted to "Tap the Brain Trust" here, and get your thoughts and opinions!! :D

Below are links to the battery & charger/tender/maintainer I have....

Battery (ETX15) Link: Road Runner Premium AGM Power Sports Battery - Mills Fleet Farm

Battery Tender/Maintainer Link: Schumacher Battery Companion Charger/Maintainer - Mills Fleet Farm

Thanks,

The maintainer manufactures state to check with the battery manufacture for the correct charger. I went with a c-tek 3300 and it works fine. Battery Chargers - CTEK Battery Chargers Multi US 3300

MustBe that battery looks like to be a Decka ..same numbers as decka...and the way the posts are ..2 ways...but as far as the maintainer i think you would be fine...only batteries i see that are fussy are the Gel batteries...but even most of the newer maintainers will say gel included in the manuals..
