Can trickle chargers be used with stop-start engines?

Due to the coronavirus, I want to ensure that my car battery stays charged. The advice seems to be to use a trickle charger. I've noticed that many trickle chargers are not suitable for stop-start engines. If this is correct, what sort of charger would you recommend?
