    Hi all

    This maybe a really daft question but here goes. (still a newbie!!)

    After reading loads on the forum i am going to get a 2nd battery for the MH. Question is what do i need to go with this to connect to 1st battery , charger etc etc?

    Read bits on battery master too, do i need one of these also?

    Thanks in advance

    Rob

    Alternatively
    Ideally batteries should be close together and linking with large cable is preferable negating the need for fusing and making them as good as one big battery as the cable is bigger than the internal lead connections.
    The terminals come in different styles too, studs or threaded posts or both.
