    No "trickle charger" is recommended. I consider a trickle charger one that charges up to 2 amps and does not completely shut off when the battery is fully charged, so then it will boil. I use a Battery Tender on my '85 Camaro year round and on my riding mower over the winter. For actually charging a low battery I use a 2A/15A/100A Engine Start automatic charger. Automatic chargers claim to stop charging and just maintain when the battery is fully charged, but I'm not sure they're as safe for long time maintenance as the Battery Tender (or others like that).

    Agreed; its the "maintenance", as in 24/7 low current application that removes service life.

    My "maintenance charger" only comes on when voltage drops below 12 volts, and shuts off again at 12.4. 1.5 amp charge. It kept the Walmart battery working fine for almost 10 years, and died suddenly with a bad cell.
    I searched around for a 94R AGM battery in stock without much luck. Turns out Walmart now carries a 94R AGM for a bit less than $200 out the door.
