main thing to remember is to only strip one battery wire at a time. Ensure the other wire is well protected and out of the way

good deal! Chargers are one area that often gets overlooked, you can't beat a good charger. That is why I got the Cellpro 10s, expensive but well worth the price.

A soldering station (or "third hand") is worth it's weight in gold for good connections. I'd suggest going to Deans plugs as well. I'm really liking them - good solid connections - and idiot proof once they are soldered correctly.
