Maintenance charger for starter battery?

Is it OK to make a battery tender connection to the starter battery via either the CCP or, say the cigar lighter plug?

Maybe they changed it for 2016- my 2015 they both turn off after 30 minutes.
they turn off in my 2016 after 30 minutes as well. (all three -- i have the rear power outlet as well.) if HCSGuy has a way of keeping them on, i'd be interested in hearing it.
Ford says to not use the CCP for connecting a battery tender. I have a 5 amp Battery Tender and it works beautifully.
Hmmm. I seem to have missed that caution warning. Anyone know why Ford might not want you using the CCP for a tender? Clearly the current flow won't be an issue, so what might be the problem?
