Best way to hook up a battery tender?

I am going to drive my truck a lot less soon. I keep a flashlight on charge in the truck plus I would like to keep the batteries healthy. I havent picked out a charger yet, but the new pulsing technology seems good. Should I get two, or just hook one up to tend both? Thanks

just one charger is all you need, a small pulse trickle charger should be plenty. hook to either battery

I hooked up a die hard battery tender to one battery and it works great.
