You can connect the pump to a 12v supply from a car battery but don't connect the Bravo 12v battery to a *car* charger.

...because car battery chargers supply more than 12 v.
You cannot charge a Bravo battery (or almost any rechargeable 12v battery) with less than 13 v.

Okay, so connecting it with clamps directly to the car battery would be okay? And of course bypass the current battery, I won't put the car battery through the internal charger of the pump.
Interesting. Are there any differences on mine with battery and the other one that you have Dino? Has yours got a charger plug hole on top?

mine has no charger hole ,it came with two long leads with croc clips on i have purchased my own battery and charger and the battery sits in the back pouch of the carrying bag the bravo came with
i got mine approx 5 years ago , the only thing i would add is if you leave the lead acid batts with charging for a while the do die completely ,they need regular trickle charging to keep them at there optimun

Today I got the replacement car charger, so now I'm happy again.

I see, so there's some differences between the pumps then. Perhaps yours got some safety equipment against car batteries? :o

Whatever though, I'm sure it's possible to connect it straight to the battery. I won't need it for a while though, if I can keep to your advice on handling the battery.

We got quite a lot of winter over here...
