I think that has to do with the evolution of trickle chargers. The old ones were simply low amperage chargers - nothing to stop them when the battery was fully charged so they would slowly cook a battery to death. The newer ones have sophisticated algorithms that control the charging - constantly monitoring the battery voltage and only applying current as necessary. I have the NOCO Genius chargers on both of my antiques. They have a very sophisticated charging system and I've got 10+ years on the batteries in those vehicles with no issues whatsoever.
