Looks like a Battery Tender is out of the question. Says on the front of the box "Do NOT charge or attempt to maintain charge with a trickle charger".

Best way to charge the battery, any bike battery, is to ride the bike.

Right?

You bet! However, I am a fair weather rider. I only ride when its dry and above 35 degrees. This leaves plenty of down time for multiple bikes, especially during the winter. I keep my bikes on battery tenders at all times when parked in the garage. The batteries are always ready and my batteries last for at least 5 years on average.

correct but these battery's come charged and ready to rock so unless you run into an unfortunate innocident you shouldn't need one

And like rkw said, roll start it and just go ride.. Should be fine

Unless it's one of said lithium chargers. I put mine on the balance charger once a month to maintain proper charge in each cell

That'd have to be an awfully tiny battery to offer any benefit over the OE unit.

Pound savings?!?
Maybe ounces at best.
Just weighed them both. The CV4 is 2.5 pounds lighter than your OEM Grom battery, and that's coming high off the bike. Do you really think I'd hawk batteries to save a couple ounces? On top of that, the CV4 has 135CCA vs. your OEM 65CCA. Do your battery research. Lithium ferrous is a whole different animal than conventional batteries.



Per their stats....

Up to 80% smaller than the stock battery
Up to 10lbs Lighter than the stock battery
Service life of over twice a lead acid in similar conditions
Industry leading 3 year warranty
Designed, developed, and assembled in the USA
Completely “dry” technology so batteries can be mounted in any direction
Non-toxic, recyclable, and can be air shipped
Applications for powersports vehicles from 50cc - 2300cc
Tested extensively by professional race teams
Impact and water resistant
Works with the original equipment charging system
No trickle charger required, loses only 10% of charge over a year of static use
