If you drive the car around for 40mins, that should charge the battery properly. Make sure you are driving it for at least 30mins and not just idling, as some cars these days decouple the alternator when idling to improve efficiency. Given battery still wont start the next day, take it to a CanTire etc and they can test whether the battery can accept a charge or not.
I would rather you take it to parts source, kal tire or mr. lube and they can do a free battery test. Canadian tire will charge $25 for the same thing.
As for chargers, don't get anything more than a 6 amp as slower is better. Parts Source has a 3.5 Amp Noco for $71.99 on sale.
