More Portable Ideas

Ive done a little addition to the last portable ideas page and Ive come up with an actual picture of how I think it could be laid out. Lots of changes, eg, no monitor box, but it should be more practical.

Any cables will go through the wood straight to the battery. The meters will be stuck to the panel with velcro so I can change their batteries when needed. The inverter will be tied down some how, probably some wire through some holes in the board as it doesnt have its own proper mounts. The ciggy lighter sockets, which will actually just be a 4 way splitter, will be held down with epoxy or possibly velcro again.
