Charging Battery

My car has been doing a lot of relatively short runs recently, 10 mins each time and I reckon the battery is taking a bit of a battering especially with the cold weather.

I have an old battey charger at home, thinking of sticking it on for a night to give it a little boost. I assume this would be long enough? Do I just connect under the bonnet to the red terminal and then a nearby earth point.

I had a post recently about my autolevelling not working on my Xenons but noticed recently it does seem to work sometimes and especially not first thing in the morning. Kinda wondering could a lowish battery charge be to blame - what you reckon as sometimes the seat belt butler doesn't work in the mornings but then is fine at other times. I know low battery can cause all sorts of strange electrical warnings and malfunctions.
