CTEK make some of the most advanced chargers on the market. I like the $90 7002 over the smaller $55 3300 because it has a desulphation mode which will recover slightly sulphated batteries.
I bought this charger a couple months ago, after reading your suggestion when I first bought the car. I live in New Jersey and don't drive the car too much because I take public transportation into NYC. I don't have a garage and winters here are pretty bad.

My question is, can I use this regularly? How do I connect it? Directly to the battery? Also in the winter I was planning on putting a car cover and just attaching the charger. Again I don't have a garage, but I do have an outlet next to the driveway. Is this ok to do?
