Hey guys, Its really time consuming to charge my Di2 junction box located on the bottom of the bar, underneath a lid. I have to flip the bike upside down, remove the Garmin mount, and get to a lid which has three screws located in a tight position. The little opening located in the lid below is just too small to get the charging cable through. I called the company rep last week and was told the bar isn't necessarily easy solution for Shimano's Di2 :shock: . Meaning, yeah, its not a really a good implementation. Any of you have a better solution? Thanks!

Can you not use the bar end A junction box( EW-RS910)? That should solve the mounting issue.

Or can you modify the cover to suit? Enlarge the hole or cut a new one?
