Do you think that battery set up is going to work well and last ?

Yes, I think so. Did you hear it start on my other video in the official truck thread? Plus, the batteries are only $125 each, x2.

These batteries have to be stored at 50%. I charged 2 batteries at once from 50% to 100% in about 10-15 minutes on 10 amps. I will try 20 amps next time. probably take 5-10 minutes. This charger setup cost me about $350. I have a backup single charger that cost $80 and it takes it about 1.5 hours each. I plan to swap them out with a fresh pair every run or 2. They cannot be charged on the car or with an alternator. If you have fans and pumps that need to run between rounds, you need two sets of batteries. Swap them out right before you go to the next round. It's a little more work, but they only weigh 1.6 lbs and you lose the big battery(s) and the long cables.

6600 mah, 25c discharge rate. 6.6 x 25 = amps. I use something similar to check the batteries and I go by the voltage. They need to come off at around 15 volts.
