Battery Charger for Longterm Storage

Battery Charger for Longterm Storage

> Could anyone suggest good battery chargeres for my shark sitting in the garage?

Wal-Mart sells a "battery buddy" trickle charger (1.5 amps I beleieve) that automatically shuts off when it senses a full load. It was designed to be mounted in the engine compartment, however, most people I know will mount it on the wall in their garage next to an electrical receptacle. Then fabricate a "quick connect" system to the battery terminals with hardware from the local Radio Shack.

I'd recommend the Schumacher SE-5212A. It's fully automatic so you can't overcharge and has 50/10/2amp output for starting, fast charging, and trickle charging. I bought mine at Wal-Mart for ~$50, or you can buy them online at Schumacher's web site.

I've used this on my '83 for a couple of years with great results. Does anyone out there use something similar on their S4? The S4 owner's manual makes me leary of trying any kind of charging on that car for fear of frying the brains... Any insight would be appreciated.
