I have the same...and wouldn't be without it!...saves a lot of flaffing when testing Batteries and Topping up charge.
As well as a 12v take off port below for handheld spotlight ..air pump ect....Plastic ("Bulgin") with Screw covers ...both installed from new and they are definatly 100% waterproof
I also installed "waterproof" USB port (snap off friction rubber cover) I installed it inside a glovebox on the Consul for extra protection (phone iPad charging ect) ...don't see it lasting forever in a Salty environment ....but 4yrs in its still fine
A thin coating of silicon grease on all seals seems to help
