Should I charge my car's battery or normal or AGM mode?

I have the new Toyota RAV4. I want to keep the 12v battery trickle charged during lockdown. I have a 10amp CTEK charger. Should I be charging the battery on the standard setting or AGM? I can't see which type of battery I have and it's not indicated in the owners manual.

If in doubt charge in the normal mode, the battery will still charge to 100% but will take a few minutes longer.

We own a SEAT Arona FR auto and we need to self isolate as we are in a high risk group so won't be driving the car for the next 3 weeks. We wish to put the battery on trickle charge. We have a C-TEK charger...
