PEB: What connector did you use? I like the convenience of having 1 connector, but I still may want to use two connectors to eliminate a single point of failure.
I used automotive connectors from an Audi. They have VW part numbers.
Female connector: 3B0 937 741
The male consist of 2 parts: 3B0 937 713 and 3B0 979 714
Female pins 2.5 mm2 square: 000 979 225 E
Male pins 2.5 mm2 square: 000 979 226 E
You can find the parts on eBay.
If you want 2 connectors you can use 191 972 714 and 1J0 972 704.
Male pins: 000 979 219 E
Female pins: 000 979 225 E
(google the part numbers to see pictures)
