Well… I am dedicated to find out. That’s part of the fun, trying to revive an old car. And it being the first EV, I am about to learn lots of new stuff
I just read the instruction manual (yep, if anything else fails…) and there it states clearly that the 12V should charge if the Twizy is plugged in. So if I wiggle some leads while charging (and paying attention not to touch the orange leads with my bare hands) I might get lucky.
In the mean time I connect a motorbike charger on the 12V battery after the traction battery is charged. I improvised a 12V connector under the charge flap but I am in doubt if It is wise to charge the two batteries simultaneously. So it is one more trip to the shed at night but now at least I am sure to start with a topped up 12V battery. So far so good…
Thanks for your help and I’ll post the results!
