You might want to try millitary ammo cans, the 30 cal cans, they are 3 X10 x about 8 high, just put 3 inchs of sand in the bottom, I also cut a piece of galanized metal to keep the battery off the sand, the sand will keep the bottom from getting hot in case of fire, I would still keep it a ways from flamables on the sides, I just did this tonight, I am going to cut a small slot on the side below where the can latchs down just big enough for the wire to go thru and still not let fire out, I am also going to tape the slot so it wont cut the wires causing a short, I also bought one of the 18 pound letter safes for 19.00 to store my battery's in, when you close a ammo can there is no way the fire can push it up and the small slot will act as a saftey valve letting a very small of pressure out in case of a battery fire, I am really leary of the batteries so I am taking as many precautions as possible. these cans cost some where from 3 to 5 dollars at gun shows, They are portable
