Normally the wire path would be down to the bottom of the enclosure to the B- pad, this way is a much shorter path.

It's been interesting reading this thread, not that I totally understand it all, thanks.



looks good to me. i have to ask, is there something preventing you from running a proper gnd wire to the correct pad or you're just experimenting? please post back with your results.

Well I just looked at the layout and thought - battery at the top, + battery at bottom so what's the neatest way to run the wires. 

Late last night my thoughts turned to a modified FD brass battery tube, in which case both wires will be from the bottom, the shortest path and of equal length so will satisfy my desire for neatness [wink]

I guess you'll be mounting the tube "upside down", screw cap on the top of the mod then.

Your wiring plan is fine scooby, short is good but no need for the power wires to be equal lengths I think the confusion comes from the balance wiring where you don't want them to vary much in resistance or it will affect the readings.  I would change those battery terminals though a couple of brass pan head screws ground flat with a spring behind the negative one work well.

Yep, slice it open so the battery can just drop in and devise a way of doing a 1/4-1/2 turn to 'lock' the battery. Just thoughts right now until it arrives and I can have a look at it.

Cheers Jon. Wouldn't use that sled, just an illustration of what I was thinking regarding the wiring.

I wanted to follow up in this post. I pretty much have the same question and wanted to know how this ended up working.

I was thinking of making a rectangular brass or copper plate with a hole for the 510 to go through on one side and a  negative contact dimple on the other side, and then the 510 nut would secure it in place.

i understand what you're trying to do, that should work fine.

Yep, can confirm it works perfectly.
