The GOOD ones are all made by Deltran Corporation, who owns the "Battery Tender" trademark. Eastwood has them on sale right now for $50.00. "Trickle chargers" will fry your battery if left on for any length of time; the "Battery Tender" is microprocessor-controlled and can be left on with no ill effects - I've used them for years on all my toys. I bought extra lead wire sets and hard-wired them to all my cars so I don't have to fool around with clamps on the battery terminals - just pull out the connector from the car, plug it into the connector on the "Battery Tender" lead, and plug it in. I connect it to each car about once a month during the winter - takes about a day for the green light to come on, and I move it to the next one. The "Junior" model is the same principle, but is a "wall-wart" that plugs into the wall - it's made for smaller batteries like motorcycles and riding mowers.
