no offense - buy a lipo for $50 bucks made for a started box and be done with it

what happens when you flame out in the middle of a main and have to restart it?

token you forgot the Dude....

Hooking it to a car battery??? what is the purpose of this?
You will just be using a larger Gel cell.
And if you can not figure out how to hook up a + and - wire then you are in trouble
I still run Gel cells. When they die I will change them over to lipo.

If you are really serious about this you just need a jumper to go from the battery to the Box. +/Red/Hot and -/Black/Ground.

Are you going to attach wheels to this box so you can roll it around?
