I will be hooking the battery tender / quick connect cable (not sure if that is the official name of it) to my battery for my 2018 DCT. Since I plan on keeping the cable attached to the battery year round, I am wondering if anyone has found a decent area to put the "quick connect" end so that it is accessible but out of the way?

Thanks

The hole Honda supplied in the side cover is just about perfect...

I don't hook ours up except for during winter storage, so just us the clips.
This is what I do, simple and effective. Also, somewhere on the now 30 year old World Wide Web, you can purchase an SAE-COAX pigtail/adapter, should you want to use that same wire to power heated gear, vs. running a separate wire, or permanent plug.

I use my charger cord all the time, just plug it in when I get home from a ride during the riding season, and keep it plugged in during the hibernation season...

I use a zip tie that I just hang the charger cable through,as well as my heated jacket cord ,it keeps them both out of the way .....No problems!

If you do use the adapter for heated clothes (Gerbing's), remember to change out the 7.5 amp fuse that's in the battery tender pigtail with a higher value. Depending on your heated clothes, you may need to go as high as 15-20 Amps.

And remember, resistance isn't futile - its voltage divided by current...
