The Bent Up Battery BoxI have designed a battery box assembly built using custom formed styrene sheet for the semicircular ends of the box. All of the parts are cnc cut for accuracy, overlapping joints are used for strength. For maximum internal volume there are no internal supports inside the box. It's built entirely from .125 thick styrene components for strength. While this box has no cutouts for the motor, the next generation will be customized to accomodate the scooter motor foot drives that I'm working on.
