Contactor

I won an eBay auction today for an SW-200 contactor with a 12V coil. A never used part from a stalled EV project. The specs I can find are 250A continuous, 360A peak and 1500A rupture. This one has the "blowouts", whatever that means. Sounds awesome, whatever it is. $42 including shipping. I'm pretty happy about that!

Here is my current battery "array" in the garage, all nine floodies hooked together in parallel on a 2A charge, sitting at 13.3V. The AGMs are not hooked up because they don't self discharge like floodies do.
