You'll get a charge out of this.

I left the battery on a trickle charge all night, and when I went out this morning, the car hadn't burst into flames or melted down or anything.  I unhooked the charger, turned the key in the ignition, and it fired up instantly.  Yay!

Just to make sure the battery was totally charged up, I went for a nice long drive, all the way down to Lincoln, then up to Omaha and back home, about 100 miles round trip.  There didn't appear to be any problems, other than having to re-pair my hands-free kit with my phone and reprogramming all the settings on the radio.

The battery didn't appear to have suffered any damage, but only time will tell.
