Battery Pigtail Accessory Charge Connection
My suggestion is to connect a MAIN POWER LEAD for accessories, battery charging, or Jump Starting to the Starting Relay Terminal, rather than the main battery terminals. Both locations work and I am not here to challenge anyone, just my life experiences. Typically the battery terminal area has just enough room to fit the factory wires and configuration. Additionally, stacking multiple connectors together may cause a heat spot, meaning; the electric current is trying to get there, but is met with resistance. This can cause the entire wiring harness to SUFFER. Connecting to the Relay allows for a Tighter Fit, the nut can take more torque, it you will. which will let the battery do its thing. Charge and be cool. If any Electrical Engineers can smooth out this explanation, please jump in.
Pics attached show !. the cover location and ONE screw to remove. and 2. The RELAY. The RIGHT is HOT HOT HOT please please, AVOID touching the stud and nut and the Frame. This is the Positive side of the battery. The left is cold with the key in the OFF position, HOT with the key in the Ignition position.
The pigtail connector can simply be connected to either side of the relay, your choice. Cold side, Left Hot side Right. The Ground (Negative side) can be connected to the bolt just below the relay. This is the mounting bolt to the frame.
The Pigtail that comes with the Battery Tendres come with a 2.5 amp fuse, to protect the charging, NOT the wires, it is safe to install a 15-20 amp fuse to connect the Warmgear clothing, AND is the same connector that comes with that product and any of the other brands..
