Default Battery cable length

For future reference as I am change my cables out before long...On my cart and others that I have seen pictures of, they seem to have the same length bat. to bat. cables. Do they need to be matched in length? If not I can reduce the overall amount of cable used by turning half the batteries around. If you are custom making cable it looks like less would be better???

Less is better as long as you don't go to extremes. Every foot of cable robbs a little bit of power.

Less is better because it will have less resistance. Turning bats to reduce length is a good idea. Make sure you can remove caps though cuz you dont want to have to remove cables to water the bats.

The way it looks I can get rid of about 2.5-3ft of cable and not interfere with the caps at all.

Make sure you leave a little slack and do not interfere with the caps at all. Less cable is good all around as long as it isn't in the way of things.

You had better recheck your drawing. You have some of your + and - flipped. Make sure it matches your actual batteries.
