Abstract

See full text

An electrode connection platform is made of an electrically conductive material, such as brass, and configured to allow multiple electrical conductors to be rigidly and securely attached to its upper surfaces. The platform is attachable to a terminal of a storage battery. Upper surfaces of the platform are arranged so that interference between electrical conductors is minimized. The platform, with all of its attached electrical conductors, can be removed from a terminal post of a storage battery without necessitating the disconnection of any of the electrical conductors from the platform.
