I found a commercial product that also charges 12v SLAs from a vehicle (cigarette lighter) and was surprised to find no charging circuit at all! It has a direct connection from the cigarette lighter to the batteries, with a 20A fuse. Is this ok? I like the idea as it would certainly reduce the complexity of my design, but it ok to charge batteries this way? If not, what would be a preferred method?
