    Been looking at getting a trickle charger for a while seen this on the net
    The AA Shop: Solar Panel Car & Caravan Battery Charger

    Would this be safe to use through the OBD port? Or is it better to hardwire.

    Thanks Tony.

    Its from a reputable/traceable source so I would say its probably ok. Doubt the AA would recommend something that wasn't ok.

    Its just the thought of plugging something alien in to the diagnostic port puts me off,they also do a cigar lighter socket but i cant remember if it is isolated when the ignition is off?
