Nice one, thanks for the update on that.
Please be cautious when disconnecting and reconnecting, keep keys away from the car during the process especially keyless entry keys.
Always disconnect negative - terminal first and re connect last. Mainly due to the risk of short circuit as the - terminal connected to vehicle frame

I wouldn’t bother, as a Euro 6 ish car with smart charging the battery only normally charges upto around 80%.
Unless you are doing some miles the stop/start will probably not work any way. Especially at these times if you are doing short trips then the battery never gets chance to charge up. All in the name of economy and emission saving.
