My battery tender came with a cigar lighter socket and a couple other attachments. It just plugs right into the harness off the battery.

I charge mine in my right saddle bag. You can use the battery tender to charge a cell phone if you wan as long as you have the power outlet adapter.

I'm wanting to do the same thing and have read a few threads on it here and elsewhere.
I have a battery tender pig tail wired to my bike now so that if I need to, I can just plug in the tender without needing to access the battery.
I have read that you can go buy a cigarette lighter car charger that works for your phone, cut off the cigarette lighter plug and splice a spare battery tender lead to that. HOWEVER, you have to reverse wire it because the tender pig tail is meant to provide power to the battery and in this case you're pulling power from the battery so you have to reverse the polarity.
I'm not even close to an electrical guy, but if someone can confirm that this'll work, I plan to give it a try.

go to Amazon, they have what you need. One end plugs into your battery tender plug, the other end has a plug you can plug your chatger into.

Navycraig,

Since you have a cross bike you could put a charger in your saddle bag. Everything you need can be bought from radio shack for less than $20. The only reason I have a charger that connects to the battery tender is as a just in case I want too charge multiple items when stopped.
