Trickle Charger

I am about to take delivery of a 2017 Cayman S. This will be a limited use, special occasion vehicle. Normally I keep my vehicles (classics) on trickle chargers which really extend battery life. I've been told that with the modern electronics, today, you have to use a special charger and if you disconnect the battery, you have all sorts of issues. Any guidance? Thanks, Larry

Buy a Ctek battery maintainer (not a "trickle charger" but a true maintainer) and get the lighter plug adaptor (your car is set up to run a maintainer via the lighter plug in the dash).
