I have an Ultra Gauge so I can monitor my battery voltage, great tool with stuff like that and running a sub with the car off. Yes a charger is recommended. Theyre not too expensive, and honestly, a good tool to have anyway. Seems like Im constantly using mine somewhere, whether it be the Bimmer, the stupid Range Rover, or rebuilding the subaru engine. Just go pick one up!

The only time you need a charger is if you're coding. Otherwise no.

You'd don't want a battery to die during coding. That module would be ruined if that happened.
