Page 108 of an E83 manual, on this site in Ref Docs, shows the usual underhood poz and neg lugs. The crummy line drawing is tough to read, but it appears to be similar to my E53, with slight location difference.

I attach my Batt Tender alligator clips regularly to my underhood pos and neg lugs, with no problem.

That Sears Batt charger doesn't say much in the specs, but if it has an adjustment, I would set it for the lowest amp setting you can vs giving it a high amp 'hot shot'. Hook it up and if it takes a day or so, so what...
