The best power panel made ?
I am in the process of building a new field box from Sig...the big one. I would love to buy the old "Taylor" style power panel, but I can't find them anywhere. I would like a really top end power panel and need to be directed to it.

I've reviewed all the current models for sale by Tower and Hobby People...and I'm not impressed.

What's out there guys...?

Soft landings always,
Bobby of Maui

I like the Sig Fieldboss Power Panel.
It includes a built-in charger for nicad glow plug battery, a expanded scale voltmeter and more.

I Use The Hobbico Accu-Glo.I Like It Because I Do Not Half To Worry About The Voltage To The Plug.It Has All The Other Things I Need.It Does Not Have A Glow Stick Charger.I Have Had Mine For 5 Years And No Problems.
I Have Good Service From All The Hobico Producs I Have.

I have the older Accu-glo. Not bad. But some of the markings have rubbed off due to fuel

I built that box. I found it to be better suited as a wheel chock, just too big. I made my own power panel with some wood and female banana plugs. Frankly, I never use a power panel. I find the to be cumbersome and inefficient at best.

Now I just have a duffel bag with some small divided storage boxes for small items, some fuel, tools, parts, 4 glow starters, (2 rechargeable and 2 alky for back-up), and a cordless electric starter....DONE! I charge at the field, if needed, in my truck...I always carry 2 chargers and a power inverter.

My guess is that box, no matter how perfect, will end up on your workbench as a tool box. It's just too big to cart around. Add a gallon of fuel, a battery, a starter motor some tools and parts and it will weigh over 50 pounds. I LOVE that box, but a good stiff-sided duffel, (the kind that salesman use to keep paperwork in), is better for my needs.
