I use one of these Battery Fighter float chargers to keep the SD1
permanently charged up.
I attached a simple cigar lighter type socket up under the air intake at
the front of the car and plug the Battrey Fighter into this when the
car's not being used.

You can also purchase a very slow charge battery maintainer from Harbor
freight for about $7 on sale. this will keep it up with minimal danger
of over charging. Great for cars that do not get driven regularly.
