Question Blue Ox Patriot battery

The battery on my Patriot supplemental brake system is dead. Haven't used it since mh has been stored. Does anyone have any ideas on how to charge this battery? Blue Ox tech said just plug into vehicle 12v and let 'er rip for 8 hours. Only problem there is all my vehicles need to be in "Acc" or running to power the lighter receptical. He also suggested a charger that would plug into my house 120v with a female lighter receptical that the patriot would plug into. After many calls to auto parts stores and several rv dealers I'm convinced that beast don't exist. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks and stay safe

Getcha one of these:
https://www.amazon.com/LEMENG-Batter...attery+charger

and connect to your car battery or car battery charge. Might even be available locally at Wally World or an autoparts store.

What you are looking for is a 12v power supply (takes 110v AC in - and outputs 12v DC...) can be wired to a female cigarette lighter if needed...

Have an extra PC power supply? its a good source... they typically need a light bulb (or some load) wired across their 5v output wires before they will output on the 12v side...

I have found small adapters that plug into 110v and give cig lighter receptacle... Like one of these:

but won't handle as much current as other choices...

Or connect to a tractor battery... or the MH coach or chassis battery.

I have used this as well, but then purchased this:

This charger works very well!
