Re: golf cart battery installation

I don't think they're overkill. I sized the one to the inverter/charger using an online calculator. It can pull about 200A fully loaded, and it's probably a 6-8' from the combiner one way. This bank also feeds the engine starter and the autopilot, which are both heavy loads, though intermittent. I've actually been thinking that my battery cables to the combiner are a little on the small side, but since there are two of them I've decided it's good enough.
