At very low frequency, the poor capacitor can't handle the huge current ripple, and it ends up just taking everything from the batteries, and you have no control of current.
I see a need for some kind of dash mounted temperature gauge. Either something that reads the data stream or an off the shelf remote thermometer attached to the base plate.
