    Trickle Charger Cable Position

    Hi all,

    Just a quick question.

    Those of you running a trickle charger on your car, where do you run the cable through while it's plugged in. I recently got told it's better to run it through the top of the bonnet as pictured, but I've always just run it out the front just on the side of the Emblem with the latch in the first lock position, so th bonnet isn't fully closed.

    What's everyone else doing?

    Welcome! No pic so let me know if you need help.

    I charge mine with the bonnet up.

    NoelIsFirst, I do it the same way as you do for all three of my cars, one 911 and two 356s. I have been doing it this way for 30+ years.
