Hello all, long time no post. I have been busy with other pursuits while my charger has had only about 2,000 miles in the last 3 years!
I purchased a battery tender as my car keeps dying and it takes forever to get it charged back up in between drives.

My question is if it's okay to connect the battery tender to the terminal in the engine as that is where I always jumpstart it, or do I need to run it directly to the battery in the trunk?

Please let me know.

Thanks!

Which ever is easier... I think the engine. And you avoid the potential (albeit very rare potential) of igniting hydrogen gas.

That's what I figured. Thanks for the response!

BTW - found out the hard way that if you use the dash plug and it is set to go off with ign then the battery tender doesn't do a thing

Instead of changing the fuse setting I just use the ctr console plug
