Have a question and I can't find it in the manual. I am leaving the car for a while and going to put a trickle charger on it. Can I use the posts in the front of the car for charging or do I hook up directly to the battery in the trunk?

Battery

I use Deltran Junior battery tender's.
I would NOT put a trickle charger on it, as it will tend to over charge.
You can get them on Amazon or E-Bay, for approx. $25. Includes 3 seperate leads, to use to connect direct to battery.
I ASSume you could use the posts, in the engine bay, too. NOT sure though.
I suggest hooking it direct to the battery.
Plug-in and walk away, then when you come back, you will have a fully charged battery.
Been using them for year's and average life of battery, for me, has extended to 10yrs. +, service !!
Well worth the money ....................

An old thread but timeless topic. Keep in mind a standard battery charger and/or the car's alternator only charge the battery to 80% capacity. For the last 20%, a 'smart charger' is needed to keep from damaging the battery.

With 'flooded' (lead - acid) batteries, it is desirable to use a Smart Charger periodically for preventative maintenance. Why? Keeps the internal battery plates cleaner. I usually perform this maintenance item quarterly.

Thanks to Brokenbone above for bringing up the topic of 'smart chargers'. Deltran is one of many manufacturers of Smart Chargers.
