Mounting batteries

21 02 2010

So, it seems like the battery layout I came up with (as shown in a previous post) will work out ok, but the one thing that’s still been bugging me is how to ensure that the batteries stay firmly in the frame. I don want them jumping out when I hit a bump.

Others have done nylon straps of various sorts, and it seems doable. but for some reason, I’m looking for something different.

I’ve been looking for a way to either screw or clamp them in place. After sitting and staring at the angle aluminum and my packs for a good while, I think I have a plan. It involves tapping sone screw holes in a piece of flat bar aluminum, welding (or riveting) a that bar to the bottom of the Thundersky end plates.

More info and diagrams to follow…
