Pump on battery charger

Looking at the idea of using a waste pump (Flojet 26125) to. Empty the black tank at home into the sewer.

My question is the ability to hook up to 12 volt power. Instead of getting the wire and running it back to the battery for occasional use, it would be much easier if I could just look up the leads to the terminals on a portable battery charger. Any reason why not?

Thanks for your help!

I don't think most portable charger are well regulated to 12 volts, could burn out your pump.

Get one of them "Jumper Packs" to run the pump. Plug it in once in a while, to keep it charged.

I ran a wire from the end of the generator battery cable, much shorter run to my waste compartment.

Unit can blow a 20 amp fuse if the motor hangs...

Instead of a portable battery charger, try a portable battery. (Jump start battery) I know they will do it if big enough (Mine was rated 1,000 amps peak , 27 Amp hours on the battery itself and it worked perfetly the first time I used the pump)
Home is where I park it!
