Battery charger through 12 volt outlet
Quick question, I installed a 12 volt outlet a while back with a 10 amp fuse direct to the battery with 14 or 16 gauge wire. I was thinking since it is so much work to get to the battery, would it be possible to charge the battery through the 12 volt outlet. I was just gonna use a battery tender and put a plug on it to plug in the 12 volt outlet. I have heated grips and fog lights already run off the battery so I don't want to add anymore wire under my seat to put a quick disconnect in for the charger.
So to me plugging the charger through the 12 volt outlet should work as it is basically direct.
Does this sound right?
