VICTRON BMV 600 Battery meter

Greetings:
Does anybody know of a source for the Victron BMV 600 Battery Monitor for less than Jamestown charges? Seems like a nice unit, especially after hearing some Xantrex nightmare stories. . .
Thanks in advance!

195.50 looks like a good price to me. I paid 239Cdn for a Xantrex Link 10 and with the dollar at par that would have been a better deal.

Jamestown had the best price when I bought mine back early summer. BTW it's easy to install and set up. Hardest part was finding a place to make up a short negative jumper wire to go from the shunt to the battery. Made mine own up at Fawcett's in Annapolis. They let me use their crimper tool. For best info you'll need to "zero" it out after you cut shore power or stop motoring. I think you'll like the unit.
