So it has rained just about all week, so any outside work was out of the question. And I don't have a garage for this project. So I decided to build a mock up battery using sturdy poster board. It's a nice yellow box that is slightly larger than the T-1275 its is modeled after for worst case senarios.
I am also going to start to work on my battery charger that will be made out of ATX power supplies. I am trying to figure out if I can put these things in series, but I have had no luck finding out. I might just have to try it and see what happens. I want to make a system that allows me to just plug in the ATX boxes without modifying them.
