The battery cover is made of sturdy polythene, and handles impact very well. The screw holes are countersinked. which keeps the screw heads well protected when coming off a curb or sidewalk. Dirt is going to have a hard time trying to accumulate on this cover (as it does on the orginal cover). The branding on the battery cover is just an outline and very shallow – there’s no space for dirt here…
The cover comes in two alternative:
6 mm battery cover with 1 mm foam tape applied, to make it more resistant-water.
6 mm battery cover without foam tape – use silicon to protect against water
All battery covers have foam pads to secure the battery
