When attaching leads from battery tender to battery: Can I tap into any + & - cables or should I go directly to battery posts? Thanks.

I believe that would depend on whether or not the leads are on a switched curcuit and if you are on the side of the curcuit that is a direct link to the battery . If you have a voltage tester , I would check the voltage at the battery before and after you plug in your tender to see if it increases . Hope this helps .

It is best and probably just as easy to hook it directly to the battery post. I routed mine up behind the drivers seat and then zip tied it to the cage where it mounts to the chassis...makes it very easy to access and you just tuck it back in and would never see it untill you need it. just my .02

I run a gm alt. plug directly to my batt. female end on my battery male on my tender that way the charger stays home out of the elements and away from all the shock from the bumps. plugs available at any auto parts store cheap. I like the gm plug heavy duty easy to unplug and heavy guage wires.

When you purchase a battery tender they come with an adaptor or lead that mounts to the battery terminals, you then leave the battery tender where ever you want and then plug it into the lead when you are ready to use it.
