Anybody protecting their battery from the sun baking it?
I didn't take measurements, but to the touch the case feels about 50°f cooler on a sunny day after adding the reflective insulation.
I put a small spacer on the battery where the bungy cord crosses to maintain an air space between the reflector and the battery
So... Anybody think the ugly look is worth anything?
