Hi
Im awaiting a LifePO4 battery with m 8 bolt terminals. I want to put two or more ring terminals on each terminal.I dont really want to put the usual posts on. Does any supplier have bolt- on 2/3 way attachments (capable of handling 2000w inverter supply and general hab. supply. all I see advertised are 2/3 way post terminals. any other solutions welcome. Or is stacking them on the 1 bolt acceptable although it sounds a bit uncertain re good connectivity.

Stacking is fine if done correctly. For the high current cables you will need to fit the lugs with the proper tool to make the joint tight and remove the risk of introducing a resistance.

Do you put flat washers between ring terminals with spring washer at top or stack directly on each other?

Just use a washer at the top the main problem is making it look neat as more than 2 rings will stick out in all directions.
Using a busbar will make it look neater, just use copper strip.

It depends on the type of lug you use and the length of the bolt. Generally I don't put washers between unless I need to in order to point the wires in the same direction. Finish off with a flat washer, then a split washer and nut
