Im just probably going to end up linking the 4 batcap 800s Ive got with them and then run jumpers off of my XS Power D2700s then just get the power for my amps off of the buss bars that should help spread out the load

I think I'll be using two batteries, but it may be more.
I don't think I can get copper locally.

I think aluminum will be fine. I'll just coat them.
I think I understand how to make them, just want to take a look at some in use, to see how its done.
