Mercedes SLS has a magnetic charge connector in the trunk.

True. My SLS has this magnetic connector with the same CTek charger that my 2018 GT has. Works great.

when I purchased mine the three piece set was not available but I also bought a few more sets to try out on other cars. I have not decided where to install it on the 05 yet but it will be somewhere under the car that will be easily reached from the outside for a quick connect. the cool thing about these, is that incase you forget to disconnect them you can drive away and they will just come loose without too much drama.

I can’t tell you how many times I drove away with my charger still connected. I even crushed a CTek charger with one of my tires while backing up. I’m ashamed to say how many cords I’ve destroyed.

It is a 12 volt lighter plug.

Do you guys know there is a new charger coming with the newer cars? It will wake up a sleeping battery.

perfect for 99% of the cars out there if they ever wakeup at all.. however, sleep is overrated

Mine has it. The charger has a button on it to surge the battery a small amount to wake it up.

$400 for the new Ctec charger from Ford. I have not seen it anywhere else.
