I am nervous

when I hear people talk of trickle chargers or even 1A changers.

I want a maintainer/tender for use on my battery, one that turns itself off after the battery is detected as charged, then wakes up every once in a while and checks and either goes back to sleep or charges till the limit is detected and then sleeps.

I agree that 1-2 weeks is OK to leave the car without a maintainer on it. And that the "I'm awake and trying to sense that you have pressed the remote key fob" circuit turns off after a while so it won't continue to drain the battery. So use the key.
