Perfect Multi-Purpose Portable Power By Guest
I'm both a Ham and an amateur astronomer. Both benefit from portable 12V power. I just received my PWRbox and SLA battery today. This box can power my KX3, VX-8 handheld, charge my phone, and power a telescope at the same time, not that expect to need all at once. Other products I compared and home brews can't come close for price and features. The volt meter is nice addition as some equipment is damaged by low voltage which can happen as use drains the battery and the temperature falls at night.
Only suggestion, add an ordering option for the red meter for us astronomers. Blue light is frowned upon in the field. I may look into replacing my meter with the red voltage and temperature meter.

Excellent Choice When You Lack Tools or Want to Save Time By Guest
There are multiple videos on YouTube which show you how to make a power box. They all tell you to buy a plastic ammo box and drill multiple holes in the box that will be used to mount accessories in the box such as a voltage meter, on/off switch, USB ports, banana jack posts, a cigarette lighter shaped port, fuses, etc. They tell you to cut up some wires and hook up all these accessories together in the ammo box with detailed instructions on where you will be attaching all these wires and accessories. This product is virtually identical to what they are showing you how to make in the YouTube videos. Buying this product will save you a great deal of time on the complicated assembly they show in the videos. It will also save you money if you lack the tools needed to make your own power box.
