    I'm shopping for a trickle charger and looking for recommendations. Don't want to spend a fortune on one but would like one that I can leave attached to the battery for extended periods. From what I understand, I need one with a float charge that won't overcharge the battery. Any recommendations?

    I actually use one from.....Harbor Freight....I know, but I've had it for several years, works good, and was less than $10 with coupon.

    Price went up since I bought mine.........$18

    Walmart carries them. They also have a quick disconnect you can use that makes charging a snap.

    Better still! Being a Walmart retiree, my discount card shaves a little more off the price.

    Exactly why I said it. Fixed incomes!!! Lol. Retired Army and retired Walmart. Be honest Ron, which one was more difficult? My bet is on Walmart. :D

    That would be a big "affirmative" on that, Chris! Luckily I was in Transportation management and didn't have to work on the store-side. I used to think that the Army had a lot of policies and procedures; can't hold a candle to Walmart though.
