I have a Concorde RG-35AXC battery and a BatteryMINDer® Model 128CEC2-AA-S5: 12V 8 AMP CONCORDE® Aviation Battery Charger-Maintainer-Desulfator. My plane has the factory installed external power receptacle. I saw on the BatteryMinder website that they sell an APU plug (BatteryMINDer® Accessory: A2GPU-1: Anderson SB-50 To Cessna-style GPU Plug) to connect the BatteryMinder to the aircraft via the external power plug. Looking at the wiring diagram for the external power plug for my aircraft, it shows that the APU plug uses one + pin to energize the external power relay which then connects the second + pin to the aircraft battery.
I typically connect my BatteryMinder to the battery and leave it on until my next flight which could be up to 14 days later. My question is, if I use the BatteryMinder APU plug to connect the BatteryMinder to the aircraft, does the external power relay have a continuous use duty cycle or will it end up burning out due to continuous energize power to the relay?
