    Built in shunt.. That's a killer for me. It means you would have to run its built in cables from the battery to where you want to mount it back to the battery area to reconnect all your existing stuff.

    It doesn't mention peukert's constant so does it take this into account?

    Sorry, it looks like a diagnostic tool not a long term monitoring device.

    Does it wall mount?

    Yes the built in shunt b*gg$s it. I would have to run massive cables to wherever it was mounted to allow up to 150A to my inverter.
