Re: Emergency Power Wiring Kit (for Nissan Leaf)

I was thinking about how to fuse the jumper cables on the + side. I'm not sure if the inverter is already fused or not - I'll check. I think that these AGM batteries like about 13.5 volts, so I'll connect according to how long I think I'll need to run the setup. Thanks.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I have done that before. My main remote power supply is a 12v 2,000w samlex on top of 60ah of LiFePO4 prizmatic cells.
The lithium battery attached to the power inverter would supply the Lions share of power then the lead acid would provide 20-30 amps through jumper cables under load, then 10-15 amps during recharge.
Bus this was an ice car with a rather anemic alternator.
The samlex has a built in breaker that triggers if I connect a 9 inch grinder or skill saw with out a varriac.
