Victron Smart LifePO4 - Parallel Install - Battery Wire Lengths

Hi All

I am installing 3 smart LifePO4 batteries in parallel. Reading "wiring unlimited' - I am aware the battery wires (from batteries to busbar) must all be the same length.

Does anyone know if I can make -Ve and =Ve wires different lengths ?

Due to the orientation of the batteries and busbars - it would be great if I could make the 3 -ve wires 70cm and the 3 +ve wires 100cm. All -ve wire the same length (70cm) and all +ve wires the same length (100cm).

Thoughts or comments ?

Many thanks, Tim

Many thanks for quick response Seb71 - cheers.

Just make sure you fuse each positive battery wire.

Thanks mate - yep - the batteries are being wired in to a Lynx Power In (modified to take Mega Fuses) - so all batteries will be fuses. Thanks again.
