Experience Told Me: Mounting locations and needs differ, so selecting proper mounting hardware would be up to us.
A local hardware store didn't have what we needed, but West Marine did. And, while we were there, we picked up a nice addition to the project. The charger itself comes with a standard six-foot AC power cord, but leaving it lying around inside the console isn't the cleanest installation. A better solution is the ProMariner universal AC plug holder, which allows you to install a weather-resistant receptacle in a convenient location.
