Charging battery without disconnecting it

Hi guys,

Is it safe to charge my 1999 TJ's battery without disconnecting anything, using a trickle charger?

Been doing it that ways for more years than I hate to admit plus Ive yet to see anyone remove the cables from a battery that was already in their vehicle.

That's how your alternator does it when the engine is running!
Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
