No need to `wet`
I have been using this method for four years without issue

Surely the bolt should earth via the thread Paul unless there’s paint on the body’s female thread or the bolt is plated with something non-conducting?

Is it possible to use any battery trickle charger connected to the cigarette lighter to maintain battery health?

Trickle Charger - no - they just keep charging, slowly, but they keep just charging. A battery conditioner on the other hand monitors the battery level and only charges when it needs it and some actually exercise the battery slightly but going through a cycle of slight discharge.
If your ciggy lighter is one that stays active after the 1st "sleep" phase (20 mins) then plug in a ctek or equivalent and you are all set. The 987 ciggy lighter sockets have logic that prevent them powering down after 20 mins if something is in there and active. Have used this method with a ctek conditioner for 3 winters / 2 cars - I tend to use the car much less in the winter - but still drive it every few weeks - but I get in the habit of just putting the ctek on when I park up and I know I am not going use the car for a while.
