I think you'll be loving it for a long time Barry. Also, I think there's a crimping tool attachment that will allow it to do a bunch of standard crimps as well, though like you, I wasn't bothered by the crimper expense, partly because it works so well.

Now the question is: what should I mount the RigRunner to? My 36 Ah SLA battery currently resides in a canvas tool bag ($5 from Harbor Freight), making it quite easy to pick up. If the battery was in a hard case, I could mount the RigRunner to the outside. West Mountain Radio sells such a thing.

 

Ideally, I'd like to make a variety of voltages available, so I need a place to mount some extra PowerPoles in different colors. Maybe a plastic project box big enough to mount the RigRunner plus the extra PPs, with the buck/boost regulators inside?

 

Need to start a "Take a picture of your PowerPole setup" thread.
