Is it ok to simply plug my charger into the starter socket on my Hanger 9 Deluxe Power Panel to charge the field battery?

Charging through the 12v starter terminal is fine. Just go to Sears or Home Depot and buy the cheapest 12v "floating" charger you can find. They'll probably be $10-$20. They work great and can even be used on your car battery if you ever flatten it by accident. Ask me how I know...
