Hey guys, there's a Data Tap on Ebay. This little gadet will allow you to use Proformers and Trimpacs on the front battery mount on a Pro Sled. It creates enough relief away from the bottom stage to allow the larger batteries to fit. The actual metering of the battery is a bit of a bonus. I suppose you could make a plate that does the same thing but these gadgets usually sell for around $80 used. You'd be hard pressed to find a male and female AB plate for less than $80.

That is a full size A/B plate which would be about the foot print of a ProPac or Hytron 120... and not the compact plate... you are sure that it would clear the front position on the PRO 2 ?

I can email you a pic of the one that I use if you'd like. It's the same Data Tap except the one on Ebay is shinney and new!
I think the compact plate is smaller in width not height. I think.
Height is where the problem with fitting a large battery comes into play.

One other thing. The battery capture on this plate is poor at best, at least on my Data Tap. It's a poorly engineered locking mechanism. I switched the plate with a more current version with the orange indicator on the latch. Minor rewiring was required. I would suggest keeping the internal resistor in line but you may be able to get away with out it.
