The Gel Cell 7ah is sort of heavy so I decided to use it to hold stuff together when the wind blows. My rig is in a plastic ammo box with the battery on the bottom when operating. Complete “Shack in a Box”, just add an antenna.
The box closes tight, has a handle for carrying and keeps the weather out...... mostly. Although I am not in a hurry I can be on the air in about 3 minutes or so but I am getting slower ! Plenty of room for note pad, pen, key and headphones. Total weight is just 12.6 lbs which is not too bad for just one package with a very sturdy handle.
The power distribution panel was 3D printed, has (2) 5v USB and (1) 12v outlets, a LED meter, on off switch and push switch to check the voltage. The box came from Wally World.
Additional construction details if anyone is interested.
