Not sure about size, don't know if you have much choice -- a "trickle"
is a "trickle".
However, I DO know that you want a type of trickle charger called a
"battery tender". This is an intelligent trickle charger that will not
ultimately boil your battery dry like a conventional trickle charger.
Typically about $20-25 bucks. Look up 'battery tender' on Amazon. (no
connection, they just have a nice selection that will give you an idea
what to look for at your neighborhood auto parts store)
