Default Where are people mounting their DCDC chargers with under bonnet dual battery?

As the title says, where are they mounting them and how? DCDC chargers dont like heat so Im worried about putting them under the bonnet. So the next thought would be under/behind the glove box - however thats a lot of cable to route back through to the engine bay through the firewall.

So does anyone have photos of their setups?

I have seen some people suggest in behind the passenger headlight. Would it get sufficient air here? How did you mount them? Photos would be grand.

Mine was professionally installed and it's located on a bracket behind the front grill, in front of the radiator but off to one side, so it gets plenty of air.

Did you mount it here yourself?
Any dramas with the amount of wires you had to route?

Nup OL did it. Been absolutely fine ever since. Prob wouldn't do it myself, they didn't charge much for it. Don't expect it would be toooo hard there's a grommet through the firewall on the passengers side which is where they ran it but I couldn't be bothered
