Trolling Motor Power CenterAug 22, 2009
By D. Dahlke
I'm very pleased with this box. It's not weak or flimsy and has molded in lift handles on each end. Its inside dimensions are 13"L X 7"W X 9"H. The vented cover has access for cables on either end and has a pretty sturdy handle attached that will tip down and lay flat and includes a steel backing plate inside for reinforcement and strength. Inside the cover is a plastic plate covering the internal wiring but can be easily accessed by removing two small screws in the cover. Underneath is the trolling motor terminal wiring, the circuit breakers, and the 12 AWG wiring for the accessory terminals. On top of the cover the battery charge indicator light illuminates when you press the test button. Instructions are also printed on the cover. The 10 AMP circuit breaker is wired to both cigarette lighter style accessory terminals, one on each end, and the 60 AMP circuit breaker is wired for the trolling motor accessory terminals. Also includes a nice sturdy belt to hold the cover on with and easy to use connector, not a buckle, and a pair of plastic hold down brackets if you need them. This box is very well thought out and built for its intended purpose. I can't think of anything else I'd want from it.

Great battery holder for boats without built in battery trayNov 19, 2009
By V. Menides
Purchased this battery holder for my 14' Jon boat. I have a 55 MinnKota trolling motor and a fish finder which hook up easily with this holder. You get every thing you need with 2 circuit breakers one for your trolling motor and one for accessories that plug into the 2 cigarette lighter plugs. I had to make a power cable for my portable fish finder, so it could be plugged in. Test button on top tells you how much charge you have left in your battery. Sturdy case that makes it easier to carry a 50lb deep cycle battery.
I highly reccomend for any need where you are using a heavy duty battery that you will be moving from place to place. I will also be using this to power my 3000lb utility winch. For 110 volt power I hook up my inverter to this power center.

Very usefulOct 21, 2011
By Amazon Customer
I use this to store a spare auto battery in my car's trunk. FYI - there are two circuit breakers, one 10 amp for the two cigarette lighter sockets and one 60 amp for the screw terminals. There's also a voltage monitor - press the yellow "test" button and you get a 4 LED readout of the battery voltage:
no LED's = less than 9 volts
one red "Recharge" LED = 9 to 12 volts
two red LED's = 12.1 to 12.2 volts
two red and yellow "1/2" LED = 12.3 to 12.4 volts
all 4 LED's (including green "Full" LED) = 12.5 volts and up
The positive battery terminal cable terminator is ring terminal 11/16" across with a 3/8" hole. The negative battery terminal cable terminator is ring terminal 11/16" across with a 5/16" hole.
The positive battery screw terminal is .365" across, suitable for a 3/8" ring/spade terminal. The negative battery screw terminal is .31" across, suitable for a 5/16" ring/spade terminal.

Great productAug 27, 2009
By L. A. Kane
Very well designed. Fits group size 24 and 27 batteries. Keeps the battery dry with a sturdy plastic box and you safe with a built-in circuit breaker. There's a 12-volt accessory jack built in along with two manual reset circuit breakers, a 15-amp for acccessory plugs and a 60-amp for the trolling motor itself. The screw down's on the front work great, but you need to remove them to recharge the battery with a clamp-type charger, but that's less hassle than removing the battery from the case to recharge. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Great Emergency Power PackSep 05, 2010
I bought this for emergency backup power(hurricane, etc.).
With a 56 amp-hour deep cycle battery and a small DC to AC inverter Duracell 813-0291-07 175 Watt DC to AC Pocket Power Source Inverter, it provided enough power for 15 nights of light with a 2-5 watt LED bulb, or a couple of days running a small fan O2Cool 1078 Indoor/Outdoor Battery/AC-Powered 10-Inch Portable Fan.
The whole package is light enough with the current 40 pound battery (unit is designed for a slightly larger type 24 or 27 battery) for my wife to move if needed, but I also purchased a small fold-up luggage cartSamsonite Compact Luggage Cart to make it easier to move.
To keep the battery charged, I picked up a Battery Minder Plus.
I'm very pleased with the unit. It appears sturdy. The re-settable breakers (rather than fuses)are a nice touch, avoiding potential problems with finding replacement fuses in an emergency. The plastic screw caps on the exterior terminals seem serviceable and a nice safety feature. The built in side handles work well.
The next step would be to add a small solar panel and controller. Adding even a 10 or 20 watt panel would be enough to support LED lights almost indefinitely, and (particularly with a slightly larger battery) would make a nice solution for remote cabin type lighting.
All in all, a very nice package for emergency backup power.
