Make sure your battery charger is large enough to carry the load, turn off all other equipment during the 90 minute software load to help.

Sweet thanks.

Dumb question inbound. What's a good battery charger to do this with?

You want one that is rated over 12 amps.

Never power the avionics without a battery in the system, always connect the battery charger to the aircraft battery.
