Charging battery with Clamps still on

Charging a battery with the Clamps still atached
Bad idea or not a problem?

Seems a little weird how you can jump start a car with the terminals on
But heard you cant when charging it?

Yep. On FIATs you can get away with just about anything. I'd not recommend it on all other cars, though..........
