Battery minder quick connect pigtails

I just purchased a NOCO gen2 mini two channel battery tender and received it with battery connection cables that have no quick disconnects. I have the wiring skill to install quick connects in the factory wiring but, thought I'd check to see if anyone had found a part already wired.

2016 NM 4 DELIVERED AUGUST 2015

MODS: Honda tall windscreen, modified NC700S center stand, Honda rear center console, rear carrier with passenger backrest, modified standard garage door opener installed, rear right foot brake moved to Silver Wing master cylinder on left handlebar. Replaced Honda rear carrier with Datona unit. Installed vintage TriBar holder and Samsonite top box.
Bikes, brother's Harley Duoglide, Hondas CB92, CB77, CB750 K2, CX500 and now NM 4-2, SilverWing.

I installed this in the left side passenger foot rest tied to a 15 amp SAE pigtail I connected to the battery. I use it for connecting the Battery Minder, air pump, or heated gear as needed.

Here is a photo I took of it installed and on the BatteryMinder last winter.



Just remember to use a high quality pigtail if you plan to use the port for more than just the battery tender. I use a 15amp so that it will run my Cycle Pump and my Heated Gear. I love the location as it is easy to reach when seated on the bike so I can just reach down and plug in when using the heated gear.

I've installed the power outlet to pigtail connected to the battery but note that the pigtail is fused for 7.5 amp. Since I don't need heated grips or clothing here and I carry a compact manual tire pump, think this will work. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks, Blain

Should be OK. You can always install a larger pigtail later if needed.

Thanks Chris,
I'll just check for heat occasionally when plugged in.

Amazon says this comes as 10amp. How did you upgrade to 15amp?

That's interesting. I'm pretty sure the one I have is 15 AMP rated. The battery harness I'm using came with a 15 amp fuse and the wire gauge on that says 14. Can't see the stub coming out of the connector well enough to read the rating. I know the insulation might just be thick, but the wire looks the same as the harness. Also, the stub coming from the back of my connector is only about 4 inches long, not nearly as long as the one showing at Amazon. Wonder if they changed the part.

If so, a 10 amp circuit is only good for 120 watts which is just barely enough for heated jacket and gloves. I've run jacket, gloves, and pants.

Now you have me curious.
