I am considering carrying a secondary pack, a lower voltage lead pack, to use mainly as a separate power supply for running the motor's field. It will have the benefit of allowing the main pack to only have to power the armature(lighten the load, extend the range a bit), and act as a backup source to limp home on, should I need it. It might fit under there...
