I also have one, but mine plugs into the 12V outlet in the car. I picked it up at the dealer.

I can't see why it would be bad, you connect another battery to your car when jump starting it.

What car is it for?

i don't remember, I'd have to find the invoice.

In your case, I wonder if it would be better to plug it in via the battery terminals in the engine bay, as opposed to directly on the battery. Easier to get to also.
