SAE or Powerlet connector
Does anyone know if there is an SAE or Powerlet style connector anywhere on a 6 series that can be used to charge the battery please?
I was thinking of getting a ctek charger and comfort pigtail which connects via an SAE connector. I could also get an SAE to Powerlet adapter.
So no-one has had an answer and my further research indicates that the Powerlet connectors are more common on BMW motorcycles.
So, ctek also sells a comfort indicator with eyelet connections.
Are there any risks associated with unbolting the positive and negative terminals in the engine bay to place the eyelets on them please?
Way less weekend activity on this board so you would be lucky to get an answer in 3 hours.
Here is a thread with pics of the quick-disconnect connectors you are asking about. CTEK offers them. Most people are adding them in the trunk.
If you do a search you will find a few threads talking about the pros and cons of charging at the battery vs under the hood as recommended by BMW.
I would drill a small hole in the positive charging plate under the red positive terminal cover and use a small bolt to attach the quick connect wire. The negative can be attached anywhere you can find a decent chassis connection.
Thank you Yorgi! (Wonder how many hits I would get if I searched for those words. :-)
I will search on some other words and read the post you linked.
I like your suggestion.
