Default double vision charger aligator clips

can I plug the aligator clips directly on to my car battery?

also can I solder a dc lighter plug instead of the clips and use that?

Thanks

I know this may be a dumb question..sorry...I just don't want to mess up the charger...I do hook my starter directly up to the car battery with alligator clips so I would think that doing it with the hangar 9 double vision charger would be ok. Does anyone else do this? Thanks.

Sure you can just match the polarity.

you can buy a adapter from you LHS and plug it right into the lighter.

I called Horizon and made sure the 14v from the cig lighter would be Ok on the Dbl Vision. The gave me their blessing. I just added a separate Kyosho plug upstream from the existing alligator clips. I've been charging my plane and starter battery on the way to the flying field successfully for 3 years and the Dbl Vision is still working great! Keep the alligator clips. You can use both.
