When I had a stock battery, I also found that float charging with the Battery Tender appeared to be contributing to water loss when I left it connected for a whole winter. I assume the pulse-mode maintenance of the CTEK (after 10 days of float) is better on that front, but I am not sure since I haven't had a wet battery in the roadster in quite some time.

The Odyssey batteries seem to like the 'snowflake' mode, and I suspect that's true of the BMW AGM batteries also.
