power socket
on: February 13, 2020, 11:35:04 AM
does anyone know if my 2019 can be directly connected to charge via the power socket rather than clipping onto the battery.
my trophy had such a socket  which was more convenient,,info appreciated

The plug in socket in front of the petrol tank is permanently live. That's the one I use

Same here.
Used it to charge up the (tiny feeble Mk3) battery recently with my Optimate and it worked a treat.

It’s a great power socket, fused at 10A and good for tyre and camping pumps. Rear is rated 5A (electronically fused) and live with ignition only so good as an ignition trigger tap point for a relay on a power distribution device like Marks on this forum.

Yup!
Don't try your Airman pump on the rear socket (don't ask; please don't ;-).
