I had mine installed 4 years ago by a well regarded 4WD service centre and it was put in front of the radiator on the passenger side, as in the post by NWDarwin. No problems at all, even up in FNQld and towing.

Thats only a waterproof rating. The temperature under a bonnet can get well over 70degrees celcius. This affects the dcdc charger greatly. Suddenly your 25 amp charger is struggling at 15 amps or less. Thats why many batteries dont last long...heat. Definately listen to what the manufacturer advises and mount it where air can cidrculate and keep it as cool as possibleManufacturers advise against putting them in hot areas. My enerdrive 40 amp has 3 x 80mm computer fans mounted above it to help keep it functioning properly (located in my camper trailer with no ventilation when travelling.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I pulled the glovebox out on the weekend and mounted the DC Charger in the void area above the tray. Fits like a glove and kept out of the engine bay heat, dust, and water. Anderson plugged the wiring for future removal if it fails or needs to be used somewhere else.

For those that are interested, I finished the dual battery & DC Charger installation over the weekend.

I have some photos below showing the install steps for those looking at tackling the job themselves.

I had a 95 amp wet cell laying around at home, so through it under the bonnet instead of the AGM I had in that size.

Living in Darwin, AGM batteries really struggle with the ambient temp and engine bay combination.
