Default Battery charging

I have a large (105") pawnee with smoke installed. Smoke works great, but every time I want to charge the 6V NiMH battery I have to disconnect it from the Sullivan Skywriter unit, charge it, then reconnect it. Is there a way I can install a on/off switch with a charge port built into the switch. That way I can charge the battery with out disconnecting it. The lead from the Skywritter unit stays connected to my receiver. A quick diagram would be greatly appreciated.

Take any R/C on-off switch and put it between the battery and the smoke pump. Run the charge connector to any convenient place where you can connect the charger. Dan.

I like to use the Ernst holder to mount the charge connector . Mount the connector on the body of the plane then you can charge from the outside.
