I used the Black&Decker charger mentioned in the link when I did my battery swap a few weeks back. Worked as advertised at holding all the radio settings and was $15 at wally world. I was going to get the real Porsche one, but it was $135. I don't have that much pride.

I got the costco version of the battery for ~$65 with no trade-in. Now I'm stuck with a slightly good 8+ year old OEM Porsche battery that I'm going to give to my dad to use in his tractor.

Auto parts stores take old batteries for free if you just want to get rid of it.
