    Ben, your cable connections are almost certainly the issue – assuming all the batteries are the same age and condition. If all the cables are not exactly the same length and gauge, and have uniformly solid connections at the posts, the “path of least resistance” principle will cause the uneven discharge yore seeing.

      Thanks Grant, you’re quite right. I’ve changed both negative cables to be of identical length (and brand new terminations, etc). That seems to have resolved most, but not all of the issues. I haven’t changed the positive cables yet and there are quite a few more of them such that I’ll need to think about the options for those.

    “you’re”, not yore…. stupid spell-check!

    This looks interesting, but it looks like it is not yet available. (at least I’ve been unable to find it). Any ideas from where this can be purchased?

    • Ben Stein Ben Stein says:

      I reached out to Veratron to see if they can provide some help on availability. I’ll let you know what I hear.

      I just heard back from Veratron. Lauderdale Speedometer, Common Ground, and AC DC Marine should all have units in stock. The LinkUp product line will also be carried by marine distributors and promoted for 2021. Lastly, Veratron themselves has them in stock and will sell direct for MSRP.

      Hope that helps

    This might help – From the Veratron website:

    Thanks Grant, but I’ve tried everyone on their list who has a website. Half of those don’t have online ordering and none of them list this product.

    Sounds like just the product I have been looking for!

    Any indication of the end user price for the Veratron LinkUp?

    Ben, now that you have been living with this for awhile, any additional thoughts?
