What is a reliable 12v battery charger under $30? Answered

I'm looking for a battery charger to charge my 12v 8a battery which I use to light my 300 LED strip in the garage. What charger works best and doesn't break the bank, so under $30?

Is that a Lead-Acid battery you're talking about?

If lead acid, check wall-mart for an automobile battery charger. I use one to charge my 12V 9AHr sealed lead acids all the time. Make sure to select a low power setting, since you want to keep the charge current to less than ~ 2A for best durability.

Mine has a boost mode that will kill the battery in no time flat.

If not lead-acid, I can't answer the quesiton.
