How do I connect Temp?
Please sufie or anyone checking threads how do you wire the Temp? is it just a second "+-" or is this designed to work with another board? if a thermostat type module is needed does anyone know the SKU?

Thank you ahead of time! :)

Looks like you solder a thermocouple to the (-) and (temp) on the right side of the board.

eta: It doesn't look like FT sells one. You could salvage one from a computer battery I'd imagine. Typically they attach one to the battery under the shrink wrap.

At no point in Trump's rambling, incoherent 1 term presidency was there anything close to what could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the country is now dumber for having experienced it.

Thermistor needed. The input "neg in" is connected to the neg battery so you can use that connection point.

Thank you both! That was really helpful. Finally got the part I will research this stuff then check for salvage options. Most likely skip it as I'm already am using fuses and my idea is just to use it to give the battery a boost in emergencies. So I'm not too concerned with having that much safety built-in.

Again thanks for the knowledge!

You need a NTC thermistor.
