I just finished the installation of a NOCO GENIUS2, 2A Smart Car Battery Charger on my truck.

Since the truck sits for long periods, I thought it would be nice to be able to keep the batteries topped off.

I previously installed a power inlet plug on the rear bumper that I use to power both an in-bed outlet and the block heater that's on a switch in the bed. So I added a plug with the block heater to power the battery charger at the same time.

I mounted the battery charger to an aluminum plate that I fastened to the under hood auxiliary switch fuse box with double sided 3M foam tape.

I left the tender on the bench, ran the permanent plug in the truck to the outside of front fender. I did like the AC cords in the truck, possibly getting damaged and causing a short.
