    you still can use a split charger, just add a inline switch to it and then you can take it out with no problem!
    ok let me know when and i'll sort you out

    the split charges i use and would reccommend for the use that you have in mind it would only need to be a 20-30amp switch, as the split charger is fused with a 20 amp fuse.
