What Battery Charger Should I Use

I just bought an Odyssey battery. I have a standard Battery Tender and the BMW badged Battery Tender for the battery that came in the bike. Which one should I use?

I used the BMW tender on my Odyssey battery for 3 years. Still going strong.

I got a new odyssey battery in July of this year and have the Yuasa charger (it's like the Battery Tender Jr.) I get home, plug the bike in, go inside and take off my boots and look back in the garage. It's already on green. The Odyssey's are good.
