Car is stored and battery is out. Looking for a decent maintenance charger for an AGM battery. There are quite a few choices, so anyone with a good experience?

I had a Harbor Freight trickle charger cook one of my batteries so I've sworn off of them ever sense. I've been using a BatteryMinder brand on my PC680 for many years with great success. I really like the desulfation feature included in this charger brand and have gotten extreme life, ~9yrs typical, from all of my batteries using this. I have multiple versions of their chargers now so I don't have to rotate between batteries (too much).

Older version of this one for heavy lifting: Model 128CEC1
These wall warts for basic trickle charging: Model 1510

Not cheap, but in over 15 (maybe 20yrs) of use, not a single problem maintaining a fleet of batteries.
