Power center for field work

Here are pictures of my second power center that I built. It is used for portable use and sometimes for voltage stabilization during mobile operations. The box has a 35ah lead acid battery, power poles on the battery side and power poles on the dc-dc converter output. It also has 12v accessory ports along with USB ports. Below is a run down on the parts used.

Minn Kota trolling motor battery box
35ah lead acid battery (battery commonly found in wheelchairs and scooters)
Blue Sea battery breaker
30 amp self-resetting circuit breakers for each powerpole
TGE Electronics DC to DC booster
Lots of lugs and shrink tubing!

The little toggle switch on the left side is for switching the volt meter between the battery side powerpoles and the DC converter output powerpoles.

Rocker switch on the right is for turning on the DC converter.
