Here's the rear batteries temporarily set in place. They fit surprisingly well.

I enjoy your blog and watching your progress on your projects.

Love the clever use of all those small chargers. How do you wire all them up to the battery bank?

How are you making out for distance on a full charge in the truck? anything near 200 miles before another charge?

Thanks for the comments guys!

Edward- the chargers are basically just wired up like any other individual charger, only instead of alligator clips I'll have ring terminals on them. Each charger and each battery will be assigned a number so I can keep track of things.

Ryan- Nothing near 200 miles yet. Don't forget I'm using golf cart batteries- basically the lowest battery tech available. Right now I'm getting about 40 miles on a charge.

On the individual battery chargers: I just wondered if there would be some kind of wiring conflict with the way the bank is wired and then all the chargers wired to each battery. Do you have a schematic you can share? I'm just curious...
