The nicest battery carts that I have seen are ones that have integrated the wiring into their designs. I dont see by your current design an easy way to do that. Maybe some kind of bar that runs above the batteries would allow you to attach the connectors to it but that would be awkward from a plug/unplug ergonomics standpoint.

Here are some pics of our teams battery cart in the link below. Each battery connection is mounted under each battery which gives students easy access to pull any battery at any time. This battery cart is around 8 years old but we have had no reason to change/upgrade it as it has been rock solid.

Hope that helps. Otherwise I think it looks great.
Thought about that, I figured the amount of space I have in there would be enough for a person to navigate with their hands. I'll look into adding a bar though thanks!
