Now we think something is wrong with our ancient trickle charger.

Mark and Anna,

A couple of years ago I bought a battery charger for $50 or $60 at WallMart and it has been very worth it. The battery died in my car and I had to call AAA. The man brought his battery charger and suggested that I go to WallMart to get one. I keep it charged by plugging it in each month and, although I have only needed it a couple of times, it has saved me money and time.
