I have a Battery Minder with the connector provided. I would like to change to something I can mount to the airframe that will allow connecting with one hand.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Don;
I have the same connector. I cut an oval hole in the fuselage just ahead of the firewall, but just behind the cowling. I let the connector protrude outside slightly. I held it in place with an aluminum bracket that squeezes the connector body. The bracket is J-shaped with two holes. One hole is 5/32" for a rivet. The other is 3/16" for a #10-32 bolt that goes through two thicknesses of aluminum at the U-shaped end. Both fasteners go through the firewall. The bolt squeezes the connector and holds it firmly in place.
Cheers! Stu.

I have a Schauer CM6A charger feeding an Odessey PC680 through an aux power (cigarette lighter) socket through an adapter plug such as this:

https://www.atbatt.com/battery-tender-081-0069-5-cigarette-adapter-quick-disconnect-black/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9vGZwvDE3QIVjbXACh3p6A47EAQYEiABEgJiY_D_BwE

The aux power socket is wired to the always hot battery bus. Thus I can charge the battery even when the main bus is off.

This Schauer charger is set to deliver a 4 amp charge to a depleted battery. It then automatically tapers down to a maintenance level. Works for me. Maybe this would work for you if you have an aux power socket.

You might try something like one of these.

https://www.ebay.com/p/Authentic-Anderson-Sb50-Connector-Kit-Gray-8-AWG-2-Pack-2-Connectors/1856190812?iid=221669705387&chn=ps

Designed for golf carts, so would certainly handle the current.

You could hard-mount one end flush in the fuselage somewhere, and have a robust one-hand connection.
