Copper wire is not a good candidate to heat. It will oxidize and it won't take much heat before it melts. It'll act like a fuse. Use nicrome wire. It's made to heat over and over.
Two circuits: one to the charger, one to the heater. When the battery is charged, dump all the energy, via the resistor into a tank of water ?

Use Nichrome.

The warmer the wire gets, the less efficient the current transfer.
