2 batteries, 1 maintainer

I now have 2 cars sitting in the garage without insurance, the Boxster and an old Civic. Can I maintain both batteries with my one maintainer? Like a 2 week rotation?

Garage
Of course, rotating a trickle charging battery maintainer is better than not. Press on. I have my lawn mower, Harley, VW bug, Boxster and a spare 12 v battery all on maintainers.

Plug this into both cars and let it go, no rotating.

I've got a single bank unit that my Dad and I share (he uses it most of the time) and it works well.

Absolutely! I use 1 maintainer for the Boxster, 2 Moto batteries and my 2002, rotate weekly. Been doing it for more than 5 yrs. and all batteries are healthy.

Cheers!
