A couple years ago I built a prototype of a charger box idea and never exactly finished the project .... settling for "meh, it works."

I also built a simple load tester that is cute I suppose but I ws really wanting to do is build all this into the same charger box.

So I got busy.  I replaced the foam riser with light ply. I've added a sheet of tin to act as a heat sync for the power supply and load resisters. Cut some holes and printed some stuff.

I had created my own hangers and brackets this time because you just can't order this stuff off the shelf.  Last build I just sort of strapped things down ... come to find out that wasn't a good option in the field.2019032311400500.jpg

Finished the suspended floor finally. 

Housing the power supply and fan.
A switched/ fused AC input block. 
An RV type shoreline input to hook up to a car battery in the field. 
A couple inline dc fuses.

Next I need to redo the top platform over again and what you are looking at is the template ... but you can get the idea.  image-20190323_220816.jpg

... and here I will rest awhile as some small parts find their way here. Some switches and junk.  The good news is that it does work and I'm back in business charging battery packs again. 

I will post up as I do some final trim and touch work and finish it off.

I've been poking at this between projects and thought I would post where I am at currently and another step forward. 

I am down to molding the last few pieces out of foam then trace that over to laminated ply. I need to get this done because it's finally starting to nicely warm up.

... and onto the top panel.  This had all sounded so simple in what I had envisioned starting out with this project.

In actuality this has been a lot of tinker toy work around stuff putting this thing together.  Granted there had been a lot of engineering on the fly but trust me. Looking back at the thread date this had definitely taken me some time. ff02d605-fde7-494a-88f3-528e9139c85d.jpg b8ac9298-c40e-4b81-be06-778534a36557.jpg c05e7e5a-008f-4a8f-b0dc-5823d2962674.jpg 7d99fc9a-12d5-446e-a102-fb27c6d0b309.jpg 8d7a3c3b-01c9-412c-b21f-12c11b82a560.jpg d96e10f6-0dca-414a-a2a3-c849d2c74b5e.jpg 

It looks real simple in the photo.....

More printed parts.  I needed a grate of some sort to keep junk from falling into the power supply.
