Springfield 48v Battery Bank undergoing a surface De-Sulfation

Tip #2 (part 2)

Battery Bank Solar and Wind Energy! Topic: Designing a bettery Battery Cable

The pre-manufactured cables are all cut one-size fits-all (basically), which leads to critical problems.

Anyone having to check the specific gravity of each cell in each battery, or adding distilled water or sulfuric acid to each cell in each battery, has encountered the tangled web the corporate cable creates.

Cables are strewn seemingly everywhere no matter how well you try to loom them.

The mess of cables causes confusion, is a proponent of potential accidents, causes phantom energy loss due to unnecessary length/distance, and simply looks bad.

In contrast, notice the custom-cut cable below.

As already stated, the Brass connectors
discovery solved corrosion issues.
But now it's time to consider improving upon another existing "cookie-cutter" convention.

Cutting tailored cable lengths allowed for reduced costs in cabling,
reduced phantom energy loss,
and allowed for a safer, more predictable work space.

This photo of Springfield's Offgrid Battery connectors shows that the mystery of no corrosion using brass is evident that our Internet censorship is a business-class manipulation for the consumer to purchase multiple replacements of battery cabling throughout our lifetimes

Direct cable connections from one terminal to the next allows for quicker transference of power with least amount of heat loss (resistance due to excess cable length), and overshadows the problems caused by excess cable, whether it be at the battery bank or the distance from the battery bank to the end-user device, hub, or appliance.

When it is opportune, checking specific gravity within the battery cells is a great way to see the true health of a battery.

Hydrometer is a must for battery bank maintenance

At times a few drops of the battery acid may spill.

Keep the Baking Soda near each battery bank just in case something should arise.
