It Rocks

A good battery box at a good price. Well-molded, tough material. Keeps battery and connectors relatively clean and protected from physical damage, rain, and UV rays. I use four inside camper storage bins to keep items on top from shorting across the battery terminals or moving the cables. The tiny top vents are present to avoid any concentration of flooded battery explosive gas under the cover. Concerns that rain might cause the battery to "short out" are peculiar, since 12V batteries and the wiring that attaches work just as well with no cover at all. Also, it would take a garden hose and a ton of patience to "fill the box with water" through these top vents. If that's a concern, it takes seconds to add a drain hole at box bottom. It's included retainer system works well for general usage. A good pick.


Cannot be beat

A tough and sturdy box with great handles and a strap


Perfect for most needs!

My only complaint of this really good, well-designed product is that the outside measurements were not identified as to which was the width and which was the height; I had to stop construction of my battery box mount because of that lacking info.


Secure Battery

This box maybe good to protect your battery. There were a few difficulties during the installation. First, the spot has to be flat to set the box stable. Second, it includes instruction how to secure the box to the bottom of the boat. Strangely, necessary hardware mentioned in the instruction was not included. So, I used my own hardware to secure onto the hand-made base. You may have to be a handyman to install this box.


Good box

I like the box, covers the group 27 fine. As others noted the vents are open top unlike other brands that have the vents raised with top covers. It would take a lot of rain to fill it up. I'm using it on a camper, and it fits the bill.
