A nice low trickle charge works best, How low does your charger go in amps?

get a batt tender and you can keep it hooked up and then just plug in the p/s.

slow trickle like said above works best IMO.

12 volt 2 amp is the way to go, less amps would be even better. The faster you charge a battery the less energy it will store. A nice long slow charge is always better. Rogs right about the battery tender and I still need to get off my ass and go get one!

My cost on the Battery Tenders is about $10.00 more then Chapperal's Regular Price.

Give their website a few minutes it seems to be down.
