One of the challenges I was having while operating portable was making sure that my power polarity was correct. Fiddling around on a mountain peak with red and black connectors on a 7a/h gel cell is fraught with danger. And when I have two or more components to connect, well …
The answer I found on the SotaBeams web site (http://www.sotabeams.co.uk/).
I placed an order for their PowerPole PP-4 Way power distribution board.
A week or so later, a padded envelope arrived in my mail box.
Construction was easy as the kit is very simple. All that was needed was a soldering iron and some solder.
I ordered the kit only (without the enclosure), so I headed to the local supermarket and bought a cheap plastic sealable container that would do just fine. All I had to do was to cut out a piece wide enough from the lid for the connectors to stick through.
The power supply connects to one set of power poles and the radio, atu and other items connect to the others. Simple.
