Is there a limit to how long you can leave a trickle charger connected?

I see you have recommend the CTEK MXS in the past. Would it be suitable for my 2022 Vauxhall Crossland which, due to my unexpected poor health, is now only covering 2000 miles a year? Is there any limit on how long it can stay connected? The stop/start has already stopped working because of lack of use.

The CTEK is a trickle charger we would recommend because it has a lot of safety features, comes with a five year warranty and also offers graduated charging, so it reduces the amount of charge fed to the battery depending on its current state. This means it is ideal for long-term storage and there's no limit to how long it can be connected.
