Default Receiver battery plug-in

In my setup it would be more convenient to plug the battery into one of the spare channels (5,6 or 7) instead of the battery plug. I will need to be plugging/unplugging the aileron Y for each flight, and it is easier not to reach around the battery wire.
Will in be ok to have the battery plugged into one of my extra channels? Any cons to this setup?
Thanks

Any slot is fine for the battery.

Or you can just use a short extension, leave it connected to the rx and plug your Y into it. Could save ya some time, plus wear and tear on the rx's pins.

I thought the same thing, but what about the wear and tear on the extension plugs? Any way you cut it something will end up being worn out eventually. I'm also running 20g wires and dont have a heavy duty extension to use.

Actually I normally plug the battery into a switch and the switch plugs into the receiver.
