Materials and methods
The OpenScad file is included to allow for customization.
The project was designed to provide an unobtrusive protective cover for lead acid battery terminals. This will prevent accidental short circuits or electrical shock. I have designed this for use with my other project, the Solar Charge Box, https://www.youmagine.com/designs/solar-charge-box-v1
The project is flexible. Edit the scad file and modify the "COVERSTYLE=x" variable to choose to:
print a full encapsulating guard
print a flat guard that sits on top of a battery.
Then edit the "OUTPUT=" variable to select your desired battery type/size.
The available sizes are:
- 12V 12Ah battery
- 12V 7 or 7.5 Ah battery
- 12V 3.2 Ah battery
Use double sided tape to adhere the guard to the battery if necessary.
Battery Guard STL files have been precompiled and included for download:

- 7 Ah flat top cover
