The user manual says it can take up to 50c but how hot does it really get under the bonnet? should i put the temperature sensor on the battery where it says to, or should i just put it as far away from the engine as i can?? haha

thanks guys.
.......


And what location did that happen to be?


It was on the top of the fuse box. I don't think this location will got very hot. Good news is that today I received a replacement one from CTEK Sweden after I had sent the faulty one to them (postage not cheap). They still support their product after expiry of warranty.

Iam on my second ctek also as it was located on the fuse box also and after a long road trip last year it died and it was only six months old. It was replaced and i have one in another car of mine but I also agree they are over rated . I have 3 ctek chargers and the work great but the dual battery one is not so good
