Re: 2 AWG Battery Cables

Don't skimp on the crimper or wire. You can ruin the benefits of converting if you do. Cheap crimpers won't crimp well and will break. Cheap wire won't be flexible enough and trust me when dealing with that size of wire in small space on a FIRST robot you need all the flexibility you can get.

The initial investment was pretty rough (crimper, converting chargers and all the batteries) but now that we have paid that life will be much cheaper.

Very happy that we did it.
