Posting for a guy I work with:

12091
Sure Power 1602

160 Amps

5-50 Volts

2 batteries

It is in NIB condition, never been used.

$75 or make him an offer he can't refuse.

I could bring it to the meeting tonight if someone was interested.

This is what a person would need if'in they were going to go with a dual battery setup correct?

I'm just starting to look into going that route...

Yes, this is the simplest way to isolate two batteries in such a set up.

Not to throw cold water on it... but a solenoid is in many ways superior. Just research your options.

Didn't want to say anything to this effect since the thread is about selling Groucho's bud's box and Sure Power is a well made version of a simple isolator.

But it's true that solenoids have less drop, at the expense of having electromechanical parts to wear and fail. Personally I would chose the diode drop for simplicity over a solenoid, but in reality I would just build a low loss solid state HEXFET isolator.
