Tip #2
Design your own Cable scheme

You won't likely be accomplishing this with a pair of scissors,

so break out your sharpest blade,


or precision cutoff saw and let's get to work!

After having chopped the connectors specified in Tip #1, clean off both ends and get a measurement leaving a slight allowance for movement on the parallel connections (none for the series connections).

Be careful while assessing your cuts.

It's true, 12v electricity is eons safer than the grid electricity, however handling batteries unsafely can hurt or kill you.

One cut for your SERIES connection and one for your PARALLEL.

A.) When cutting for series connections, make the cables as short and direct as possible.

These connections are generally clear from the service cell-caps and having slack in the series connection would be of little practical use.

B.) When cutting for parallel connections, keep the cables as long as possible to catch through as many terminals as possible. Make the cables start from the first connector, T H R O U G H to the farthest battery connector, stripping off the protective jacket to allow for any intermediary terminals that your cable will reach.

Less cuts equates to less energy loss, and minimizes other potentially detrimental variables.

This photo shows Batteries Plus "Duracell" Batteries are a farce.These batteries are actually made by Dekka.The Business sector can get away with deceptive selling practices via a comprimized polity and judiciary.

The argument for custom-cut cables isn't just an argument for safety's sake,
or that it looks neater,
or that the result are a more-efficient battery bank.

You are also gaining the least cost per lifetime by making your own cables.

As a final note, if you see burned or blackened wire, or greasy wire, these are signs of damage and the cable should not be relied upon.
