    Yes... if it is a direct, unswitched connection to the battery. Check the fuse rating, you don't want to exceed that. It's quite common for folks to connect a battery tender to the aux. 12V connector.

    Yes. I do it all the time. That fuse is 15A. Make sure your charger cannot exceed that level.

    I use a Battery Tender Junior to trickle charge through the cig. power port.
    It is just the jr. at .75A so no harm and keeps the battery topped off just fine.
    I use the cig. lighter cable hookup from battery tender as well.

    i was wondering if i could also use the flood light plug on my 4-wheelers to do the same? i don't know if that plug is hot with the key turned off or not. will have to check that.
    until last night i had never even considered using that plug or a 12v plug to charge the battery while sitting over winter.

    thanks for the OP posting that question.

    Why not just trickle charge directly to the battery? Very easy to get to?

    Yes easy to set up the battery tender jr comes with a plug to connect directly to battery and it has a plastic plug cover so one can let it hang outside the front of the hood when not in use. One tie wrap holds it so hood closes without obstruction. And I just let 6 inches hang out for easy plug in.

    But even easier if you don't have to pop the hood and reach down to where the battery is.

    You are right, save at least 10 seconds.
