I never heard about them needing a special charger, I always use a regular battery charger on mine.
You should be able to get one that pretty much matches the footprint of your normal battery.
They may not "fit well" because of how the battery is fastened into your car, so you may have to adapt one to fit.
If your car is not listed on the Optima battery website, just use the "Group" number to find the one you need. Mine is a group 34.
Other than an Optima, I prefer Interstate batteries.
I have one in a tractor that is over 10 years old now and it still works perfectly.
