You can modify a cheap PC power supply into a charger good for about 15A or so.
13.8 V / 15 A from a PC Power Supply
Also include a backflow prevention diode, output voltage adjustment (tweak for about 14.4v at the battery) and a current limit circuit. If you like, use a circuit to automatically start a timer when the voltage rises above 14.3v and drop the output voltage to 13.8v after a few hours.

Allie Moore and I have a combined carbon footprint much smaller than that of one average American...
