Ok, so edit to add the build details... This is WW after all...
Campagnolo Super Record EPS
Camillio Gravitas brakes
SRAM Red crankset with Praxis 52/36 chain rings
HSC ceramic PF30 bottom bracket
Ax Lightness Daedalus Premium (just crazy light, but as a sub-120lbs woman, it's not like she's putting lots of torque on it..)
Wheels will be her DT Swiss RR 415 (think that's what the rims are...) built with DT180 ceramic front hub and PowerTap SLC+ rear hub, laced 24/28 with DT Swiss spokes (aero lights if I remember right)
The dog in the build will be her trusted saddle, Terry Damselfly, but hey, she likes it and it works for her...
Yes, I'm the one that sprinkled some boutique parts into the build... she doesn't know how good she has it!
I have V1 of the EPS battery, so no internal installation available. I looked up the V2, but I don't think that would be an option either since the frame is so small (keep in mind that the Z5 XS is tiny)... otherwise, I love the idea of mounting the battery internally)

Cut the seatpost to size?
I did send an email to Parlee, but I doubt they work today (Saturday). I guess I have to wait until Monday, unless the DTI v2 is the answer, then the wait will be until Nov/Dec... oh well.
Maybe not the best option, but maybe you can enlarge the hole "just" enough to fit all 3 wires, (maybe 2-3mm larger?) And at worst fit a rubber grommet to seal it all off?
I had a look at my Giant, with 9070. Yes I know it is a different kettle of fish, but thought I'd have a look anyway. It only has the one wire casing, (with a positive and negative wire inside) coming from the battery and straight into the BB. which actually has a larger hole with a (plastic cap?) that screws onto the BB after the wire and connectors are put inside the BB. To seal everything off.
2013 Giant Defy Composite 2 M, 8.5kg - Wife's
Azzurro Torino 8.55g
Fuji 650 10.8kg
Miele Lupa Triple Tandem 38,89kg
At this point (unless Parlee tells me differently), I think I will just bite the bullet and wait for the DTI v2 and mount it in the seat post. Will require a different seat post though (or cut the Daedalus, but that's scary as well).
I've placed an order for the DTI v2 and plan to mount that in the seat tube. I calculated the clearance from seat post to top of battery and I will have 13cm of seat post in the frame, and 14cm exposed. Shouldn't be a problem right?
