Default plans for power distribution box

I am looking for plans so that I can build my own distribution box. I run the fan for my discharger and my charger off of one supply but the wire connections are not clean.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Save yourself the hassle and just buy a Integy Racing one. They are pretty inexpensive, have four switched outlets as well as two unswitched ones. Should be more then enough room on that for anything you may want to hook up to it.

I second this..... for the price you can not build one that looks and works half as good.

did a fairly simple and straightforward one for under US$10 (in local currency). nothing flashy or fancy... no led lights, on-off switches. all i used was a plastic project box, 3pairs of audio binding posts, some extra wire and an old dean's connector. put everything together in less than an hour.

This is the distribution box I made. It is actually very simple and very cheap! I have one unswitched port. You can make as many connections as you need switched or unswitched.

I liked mine to up till I got something else I needed to plug in, then it had to go and I bought the Integy one. Either block is nice, MM is a little on the pricey side but is nice.
