Battery Charger Options

Hello everyone, does anyone know what kind of battery charger fits the pig tails on the bobber? It’s like a double female, I’ve never seen this before.

A Bobber does not have a plug on it at least not when I bought mine. Consult your dealer to see what they added or take a pic and then we can probably help you? Also adding your location to your signature would definitely help us help you!

Triumph do a USB socket that plugs into a connection secured under the tank and bolts to the crankcase. Then you can plug in something like an OptiMate charger.

Hope this helps

Mine came with the connection also from the dealer and bought the battery tender from home depot, didn't have to use all the connections from the battery, the battery tender connector comes with the correct connection:

If you mean the pigtail accessory
that is extended from the battery, any Battery Tender model will work.

Mine came with a dealer installed SAE connector. Google it. Most, if not all battery tenders come with this connection.

This little jigger is taped in under the tank is notated as Rider Accessory Socket on the wiring diagram. You can either plug in a battery tender with a suitable mating plug, or use it as a connection for auxiliary. It is fuse No.3 and only rated at 5.0 Amps (five), so don't go too overboard on what you connect to this port. The other pic is for someone who added it to different Triumph model.

Not so, CTEK which is probably the best has a propietary plug as do others.

Oops, how about some if not most! Make a list so we know!
Battery Minder is best. IMHO
