My Ctek came with a connector intended to be bolted to the battery and just left there. Easy peasy to connect and disconnect the connector to the Ctek.

You'll have to check if it's live when the car is off. I honestly don't know if it is. I agree the ring terminals are best and I extended mine so they can be connected without opening the trunk at all.

Trunk socket is live, but IME the fit can be a little loose. Permanent connection is great, however (assuming it's like the GT) it leaves the connector on the trunk floor.

So I have one and used got the lead attached to the battery and it’s great...wind up and stick in the netted pocket when out and about and connect back up when at home

I was told that the cigarette lighter socket on the QP V is only live for 30mins after ignition off - meaning it’s less useful as a source for topping up your battery.

You were misinformed. But you have a working solution so all good
