Does it come with pigtails?I gave up using my Battery Tender over five years ago only because I saw the Optimate unit and liked it better because it offers more functions than the standard BT.
I've been using the BT for over 20 years with good service. It was the first generation unit to come out back then.
I bought several pigtails for the Optimate and have one on every bike. It makes topping up so much easier.

I don't understand your question or what you mean by connector.Is the connector fixed to anything in particular? Or is it free?
The part that plugs into the charger. Not the terminal connections which are fixed to the battery posts. The black connector in the pic. Does it dangle free or does it need to be secured?I don't understand your question or what you mean by connector.
The pigtails plug into the cord on the left. The other cord obviously plugs into a wall plug.
The charging unit can sit free, hang up by a cord or wire, or be screwed to a wall.
Thanks, I think I got it. Doesn’t need to be strapped to anything, but can be.The pigtail on the far right in the picture is screwed onto the battery terminals.
It has a weather proof cap and is cable tied (whatever) to the bike in a convenient place so it's easily accessible without removing the seat or a side cover.
This is the only picture I have of one of my pigtails. It's under the seat on one of my Honda's - but the seat is quickly and easily removed.

The battery is Lithium then? Perhaps time to look...I getting idea I won’t know until I look.
