Mack, the one I used was some off-brand from Harbor Freight that was only intended to be a float charger....Schumacher is a known brand and if they say it will just keep a trickle on it, then it probably will.

The other thing is that Waverunner batteries don't seem to get to the point that the charger knows to revert to trickle.  I have a 1.5 amp charger that is supposed to shut off when the battery gets fully charged, then come back on when it drops to a certain level.  It does just that on an automotive size battery, but never shuts off on a Waverunner battery.  In fact I think I just toasted another Waverunner battery...:>(
