As the title, is the bay waterproof? Taking the old charger out, I've not seen any road grime or suggestion it gets wet.

I've now blown 2 small waterproof chargers in the last month. I want to replace it with a bigger charger that can cope better but nothing at a reasonable price is water proof. Thanks.

No, but...

Everyone uses the Elcon (assuming you don't want to fork out for a Runke). Why re-invent the wheel? MW

Ah, dammit. I should have. $500aud + shipping from Australia. Would have been a good investment.

I ended up ordering a 150v Mean Well Charger for $300aud delivered from Hong Kong... at 1/3rd of the charge rate.

I should have waited for a reply, rather than keep researching waterproof power supplies.

Thanks anyway.
