BTW Battery Tender is a brand name.

http://www.amazon.com/Battery-Tender-021-0123-Junior-Charger/dp/B000CITK8S/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1399754035&sr=1-1&keywords=battery+tender+021-0123+battery+tender+junior+12v+battery+charger

Here is the website but direct prices are higher than other retailers.

You will notice that the unit you linked says "Not for sale in California". I believe that is due to the fact that it uses a transformer and rectifier and not a switching power supply. I suspect that the efficiency is too low to meet California requirements for plug-in power supplies. The Battery Tender brand has other units with similar capabilities and slightly higher price that meet the California requirements.

Does anyone know if the Cen-Tech automatic battery float charger could do the trick on keeping the 12 volt battery charged during a long period?
It's a lot cheaper.

The Ctek listed above from Amazon is fine.
