    1. It depends on what they are being used for. I don’t really have copper bars in my parts lists anymore as I found they were less-than-user-friendly. The closest thing to ‘copper bars’ I have are the Lynx Adapters that go from the shunt and master disconnect switch to the Lynx Distributor, but I have those machined for you and they are available in my store so you don’t have to worry about sizing them.

    2. @Nate Yarbrough, I guess I should’ve been more clear, when I said copper bus bar I meant this connection between switch & lynx, shunt & lynx.

      I forgot you offered them in your shop. It looks like the ones you offer would be rated for the 3-400 amp range which is probably sufficient for most 12v systems.

      1. Ah, I see. The Lynx Adapters you are talking about are equivalent to 4/0 wire.

        The bars are 1/4″ x 3/4″.

        1/4″ = 6.35mm
        3/4″ = 19.05mm

        3.35mm x 19.05mm = 120.96mm2

        4/0 Wire = 120mm2

  1. I am considering changing batteries from flooded cell 6v golf cart batteries to Lithium in my diesel pusher motorhome.

    The one thing stopping me is how will the batteries charge while driving down the road? I do not have any solar panels on the roof (yet!). I have a Cummins Diesel engine. The alternator is currently charging both the chassis batteries and the 6v house batteries.

    How do I determine if the alternator output is safe for the Lithium batteries. Or, will a DC to DC charger be required? And then how do I disconnect the alternator from charging the batteries?

  2. I am setting up a system on a house boat and will use 3 200ah batteries with a 200A discharge – I am double checking the gauge and fuse sizes to make sure.
