I thought about adding a cooling fan as well but didn't see a convenient way to mount it without it sticking out in the way. Where did you mount it?

Thanks Tom. I didn't notice that and have not yet placed my order. Since I have already made email contact with them, I went ahead and sent a reply, asking those questions. I probably won't hear anything until Monday, but I will post the reply. Thanks again...........Tom

I'd be interested in the answers, also what the shipping cost might be ...

I've been using a John Deere clone for 150 hours now. The first one lasted 50 hrs. The second one with a small cooling fan mounted just on top of the fins has been going for 100 hrs. now. I like the charge rate. I think this has proven that heat is the killer. They need airflow. Now that I have talked about it, it will probably blow tomorrow.

In January 2017 I ordered 14 Silent Hektik regulators. Initial price 197,-. "Bulk" price 160,-
So my advice is to make a group to buy more regulators at the same time.

Besides that in my installation I needed an extra ground wire from the battery to the case of the Silent Hektik. Without the groundwire my Icom radio "freezes" up.

I did get an answer from S.H. You suspicions are now verified. I received a reply from my last email, and was informed that they only sell in Europe. So, unless we can come up with a friend or agent in Europe to make the buy and forward the VRs, we're out of luck. At this point I'm open to suggestions....Tom
