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?


Cheers, Nick

And for some reason, blank spaces do not count.
