You can fit a flylead to the battery, routing it somewhere convenient. Then with a matching plug on the end of the charger output lead it's simple to connect/disconnect.How do people connect these things? Is there an easy way to quickly plug/unplug the unit, without lifting the bonnet?
AccuMate supply these leads with their maintenance chargers, but they sell them as accessories too and you could easily use the idea on other makes:

My R129 has the battery in the boot, so I use a short flylead that exits round a corner of the panelling in there. I just (gently) close the boot on the charger lead - M-B helpfully provide a switch that turns off the boot light
