    Most modern battery charger are acceptable. Make sure that they have boost charge and trickle charge.

    BTW, why do you need to charge the battery. Normally the car should charge it during driving.
    If you are loosing charge, chances is the battery is at the end of its life span.

    I bought a CTEK CT5 Time To Go unit. I charged the battery when I did not use the car for a week or so. A good device to have.

    Best to just replace with new battery Amaron din 100 only about Rm 600.

    I just replaced mine after 3 years with using original specs battery. But you need to do coding to register the new battery.
