That "click" sounds is MUCH better than the sound of dragging a Battery Tender. This idea is great! Thanks for sharing it with us!
Yes the PETG one is still going strong@Habious - thank you for this great idea! I've ordered the magnetic connector and it's on the way. I know you mentioned using half of a 25' extension cord for the inside-the-car portion...do you know what is a reasonable length to use? I assume 2' would be too short?
@fjohn624 - thank you for your 3D modeling! Did you find that the PETG material holds up to heat well enough even on long drives?
Thanks guys what an elegant solution to having our cars hooked up to a battery maintainer :clap:
Same here.From the connector mounted outside the car...I went up, through the license plate light (Cut a little notch to let the wire through without pinching it).
Once you're inside the rear clam, in the trunk area, it's a straight shot to the battery. I took the long way around (inside the trunk), just to keep the wires out of the way of anything that I might put in the trunk.
