I got the Plus as a gift last year and plugged it in once a month over the winter and the lights changed in about an hour. Prior that I've always just used my battery charger. Same thing, just hooked it up once a month when the bike was idle. The charger can put out 6 amps but it monitors the load and adjusts it's output accordingly. Charging the battery drew about 1/4 to 1/2 an amp initially and eventually dropped to zero. I found better results with the charger as it will drive the charge deeper if needed.
The Tender is more convenient with the small plugs so I'll probably continue to use it.
Not all those who wander are lost.
