Battery tenders are usually 2-3 amps i use a 2A on all my vehicles and my oldest battery is 6 years old and has good health, my personal best longevity was my 2001 Corvette of 8 years 7 months.

Thank you for the info. I picked up a 3amp for it and just needed some reassurance.

I have a 09 XLR & keep a charger on it. I has been on it for almost 6 1/2 yrs. Still good. Also a 03 TBird too with a charger on it too. 10 yrs on it. No problems with either. Purchased charger from Harbor freight. Take it off & drive , when I come back I put it back on & in the garage they go.

Dont use a charger to maintain a battery as it charges at a much higher rate than a battery tender and will not shutoff when fully charged and keep it monitored at correct level.
Battery chargers left un attended for longer intervals have caused battery fires, tenders have not.
