I like it. A couple questions.
Where do you buy the connectors like you used? (Are they made of copper?)
Best place to buy the welder wire? Home depot? Diff size avail?
Heavy 'LUG' terminals are available from the same place the WELDING CABLE is,
From a welding shop!
You will get the best deal there on the good cable also...
Good place to get the 'Industrial' version of the heat shrink tubing also!
Welding cable is VIRGIN COPPER, meaning no alloys like aluminum melded in.
Welding cable is FINE STRAND, which carries AMPERAGE loads much better than 'BATTERY CABLE' does.
Welding cable comes with a rubberized insulation that is abrasion resistant, heat resistant, and chemical resistant.
Can't say that about plain old vinyl automotive wire insulation!
How do you like those oddyssey batts? I want one, just trying to justify 250 or more for a Batt. FL humidity eats threw batts.
We run a lot of Odyssey batteries in the race cars at work.
Beats the 'Jelly Roll' or 'Six Pack' AGM batteries all to he!! and back!
They are a true 'Gel Cell' battery, so they are virtually shock proof unless you break the case,
If you don't plan on rolling the vehicle over on a regular basis, then you REALLY don't need them,
But if you want a solid, reliable (But EXPENSIVE!) battery, then Odyssey is the way to go over those 'Six Pack' AGM batteries...
One thing you have to watch in Fla. is putting tap water in your batteries!
You live on what is pretty much a limestone rock, and limestone in the water will kill a battery in short order.
(Limestone is a base, and it neutralizes acid in the battery)
Water from a water softener is just as bad, but in a different way.
Salt ions will coat the plate with sulfidation, and the battery is dead in short order again.
Use DISTILLED WATER from the store.
Cheap, plentiful and it will make your battery(s) last MUCH longer.
So will keeping the tops of the batteries clean...
MUCH CRAP will collect on the top of the battery, and moisture in the dust, mud, whatever will short between terminals.
If you knock stuff into the battery that will kill the cell and the battery is junk.
Keep the tops clean, keep the terminals clean and use distilled water...
