I just received a NOCO "genius GENM1" Onboard Battery Charger with ring terminals for permanent installation in my FE. It has a 4 amp charge rate and functions as a maintainer. To make life easier I also purchased a NOCO GCP1 AC Port Plug to mount so I don't have to open the hood to plug in the maintainer and block heater.
I have motorcycles and a sports car that I store in the winter and have battery maintainers on those also but they are much lighter than the genius which is built for rugged use.
There are many chargers and maintainers on the market and your requirements will be the determining factors in what you choose. There are differences in Chargers, trickle chargers, and maintainers and combinations of them.
