I would buy another battery since the charger you referred too will only last about a year. If you take good care of your battery and store it properly, it should give you many years of use. When storing it for more than 3-6 months, set it on a piece of wood or something that will help it maintain a constant temperature, a batteries biggest foe is heat and cold. Once you get home after a weekend of fishing, hook the battery to a trickle charger and let it charge for a day and make sure you keep the posts clean and free of corrosion. I would recommend either an Optima or Interstate Marine Grade battery, with the Optima you don't have to worry about spilling acid on anything because they have a gel type electrolyte and are also explosion proof and the Interstate batteries are just a well built battery and seem to last longer than most others. Good luck with whatever you decide!!
