Float if they are dead, it will take a very log time with a trickle charger, but it will work.
The idea of a trickle charger is you can never overcharge a battery, but I have used ones in the passed that will kill a battery over time.
I use the BatteryTender brand, model designed for a motorcycles, on all my cars and bikes, they seem to work very well, never over charge, and are cheap.
They do have models designed for cars, but the bike ones are cheaper / smaller and work just as well for me.
