Hi Fenix.

16mm2 it sez in the spec sheet: https://www.victronenergy.com/upload/documents/Datasheet-Orion-Tr-Smart-DC-DC-chargers-isolated-250-400W-EN.pdf

Your 2AWG is bigger than that. If you must, you'll need to doctor it to fit..

@Fenix, I have 6AWG going into mine (the first 24/12-30 prototype available) and it's a tight but comfortable fit. 16mm2 translates to roughly 5AWG, which would be tight... since we don't do 5AWG, you should either go with the 6AWG like I have or you could try 4AWG and realize that you're going to have to be carefully trimming strands. 2AWG would require a lot of trimming, and of course significantly increased risk of runaway strands - overall I wouldn't advise trying that.
