    Plug for BMW Accessory socket

    I'll probably describe this badly but I have a wire which on one end has a plug that goes into a BMW accesssory outlet and on the other end has a fitting that connects to a Battery Tender so that you can charge your battery.

    On my last service I had the techs install leads onto the battery so that I no longer need this wire, so I want it to have a good home and it is available free to the 1st person who posts with their snail-mail address.

    Butt!!!! The wires to the plug are lose so that it will work but only if you position it correctly. I just hate to toss it out in case someone can use it.

    1. You got it!

    2. You must have 42 of these things lieing around your workshop.

    3. Voni got you one for Christmas but asked me not to tell you.

    4. You gotta stop watching the forums 24/7.

    5. I'll try shipping 'er out tomorrow but if the Post Office is backed up I'll do it on the 26th / 27th.

    Congradulations and happy Holidays.

    I wind up using a lot of them. Can never have too many electrical connector/adaptors

    Thanks!!!

    I have found, over the years, that turkey basters make essential shop equipment. And then when one is needed in the kitchen, the only one around is out in the shop with gear oil or something on it. Now, Christmas comes not too long after one of our turkey baster crises on Thanksgiving - so, for Christmas, Voni got me one, our daughter Melanie got me one, our son Mike got me one, and somebody helped each of our grandsons, Noah and Brody get me one. I still have a supply both in the kitchen and the shop.

    No more baster crises

    In a pinch use the brake fluid pump in place of a baster. The 12v electric ones are especially impressive because you get to also bring into the kitchen a big storage battery - the bigger the better.
