Can I charge the battery thru the accessory port? I searched and found that it’s possible but is it with this car? I would be using a trickle charger.
I'm not sure if it's possible.
If the socket is connected through a simple switch/relay, then it should work. But, if it's connected through some sort of computer, then it won't work and you can cause some damage. Either way, you'd need to leave the key in the accessory or on position for this to work.
I think that the coolest way would be to run a connector from the battery to the fuel door. That way, when you need to hook up your car, you open the fuel door and plug the cable in there, just like an electric car.
Didn't know our gas caps are vented. I doubt the risk is very high, though, especially on 12v. Keep in mind that the hybrid battery of a car is usually at least 140v, so sparks there are likely.Electricity near fuel not a good idea if you hook it up incorrectly and get a spark you lose car. Our gas caps are vented. other hybrids that have charging ports the charging port is far away from the Gas fill.

I guess that it's better safe than sorry anyways
