Here's a few shots of mine. Nothing special 1004 watt 12/24 volt @43 amps. Self contained

Wired with #8 to terminal strip then connectors wired to the terminal strip with #12. All silicone wire.

That is a far cry from seriously injuring someone.

I haven't yet seen 12V hurt someone.
I would have to disagree with you.
Although an isolated 12v potential is highly unlikely to seriously injure you (insuffient potential to generate a current to affect your heart), the issue is the nature of the return potential.

A 12v battery is very different than a 12v AC/DC power supply. An improperly modified/configured supply can place the 12V a couple hundred volts above what you believe is "ground" and can lead to death in a fault situation (I.e. when you become the return).

As an electrical engineer with 40 yrs of experience, including the design of patient monitoring medical electronics, I have dealt with safety design in this area, which for obvious reasons is both redundant and rigiously designed and tested.

You might be beating your head on the preverbial "wooden" wall there. (inside joke between me and thwoodcrafter".

anyways, the build of my case can be found here on my blog.

Almost finished Pelican 1520 case wth 2875Watts.

I just watched the latest Big Bang Theory and it sure looked like a ProgressiveRC case with fans and lights in Sheldon's emergency kit.

It very likely is a Pelican case as that is where ProgressiveRC is getting them from.

Here is one of the setups I posted about earlier after I added the deck to it with the ventilation fan etc.

Why would anyone want to keep a Pelican in a case?

I have done one simple one over the winter.
2x 775W HP, 26V, so around 60-65A/1600W max.
I tested single PS at 75A load for 10-20 seconds and it did not switched off.
Low quality phone photos, sorry.
Power cable and iCharger does fit inside, but since i do not have power line on the places where i fly, it is not built inside the case.
Edit:
Built from these:

I think ProgressiveRC cases look more like Serpac than Pelican. Cheaper too.
