Splicing Wires on EBike and new clamps

 Basically these new clamps keep my lid on properly. Previously, I depended on two whole screws to "seal" my lid from the exterior world. Now, four [read: three] nice folding C-clamps hold it firmly in place.

Unfortunately, the new charging wires I put into parallel with the battery output slightly bulge the enclosure outwards. This is something I can understand though and fix later.





Also, terminal strip connectors exposed to high current jumps (think water hammer) can only go through ~20 or so cycles (during recharging) before they lose serious efficiency and start heating up locally.
