AGM battery charger

I've just fitted the above to the kit car, what type of charger do I need to A re-charge it after turning the engine over to bring the oil pressure up ( new built engine) B keep the battery topped up as no doubt the car will sit around A lot not being used.

Cheers

I use one of these:
Ring 12a charger

Works well and has AGM setting.

I have one of these which I put on mine over the winter or if the car will not be used for a period of time. Charges the battery and also maintains, has a plug installed on a lead which is permanently attached to the terminals so is easy to just plug into the charger.

CTEK charger

I have one of the Odyssey PC680 batteries which is AGM and 16Ah. This charger is good for batteries up to 32Ah

For info any smart battery charger with a winter mode will charge an AGM to the correct (higher) voltage which is up to 14.8volts.

For a good reasonably price smart charger with a wide selection of modes look at the Maypole MP4 MP4 on Amazon
