Glad to hear from you again. I didn't know you had moved away from Georgia.
Like Jeff said, you can build a dumb charger pretty cheap by following the directions you can find on this website. I have already built two. One is a multi-voltage model just to see if I could do it, and another that I just gave to my son uses two 90V LED power supplies. I had around $70 total in that one. I have learned that grid charging definitely helps extend the life of a battery. However, two of mine got to the point where I had to grid charge every day to keep them going, so I finally gave in and rebuilt them. Now that was a learning experience!
Also, Jeff652 sells a good simple charger if you are interested in that route. I do like Mike Dabrowski's Genesis GC01 that I used to grid charge your car very much, especially with the discharger option that I got in May, but realize not everyone needs that. With three Insights, however, the GC01 has been indispensable.
Warning, blatant plug to follow:
In case you might be interested in getting rid of your car cheap, I might be interested. My son just bought the one I fixed up.
