12v car battery = ?amps

Hi,

I just came from CanadianTire (yes, Im in Canada). I was looking for a 12v battery and a trickle charger for my Orbit MicroLader. The sales person could not provide any info of amperage for any batteries they have. Would a motorcycle battery have enough amperage or should I be better off with a small car battery-would it last longer between charges? Is the amperage for those types of cells stated by cranking amps? Since I cannot get the "cheap" RadioShack power supply here in Canada and other PS cost about $150CND ($5 US LOL) my cheapest option is the above method but how big is big enough?

Eric
