External shunt... what not to do
« on: April 17, 2013, 01:38:26 PM »
I wouldn't put it between the batteries as part of the jumper again... Its .01R and every 10A throws the terminal voltage sensing off by .1V :/ ...

I'd throw it at one end of the string or the other, and the master link as well... The interconnects would all be #2 and the drop issue would go away.

Guess it goes without saying that the short section of #10 ain't the greatest either, but it works out to "just not quite dangerous".
