Heading into a tropical summer and want to ventilate the battery bank. Its a box under the bed in the aft cabin, no real venting except one 6 x 6 inch hole at one end. Air seepage the other end.

Sooooo is it better to suck in cooler air? Or blow out the hotter air?​

Agreed. Muffin fans are not appropriate for ducted applications at all!

For all types of fans: Is ignition protection an issue? Maybe not for Mark's sealed batteries, but flooded lead-acid batteries generated hydrogen gas.
