Fortunately I didn't spend much on this as I had plenty of parts from old UPS's that I used, particularly the mosfets. Almost everything else was scavenged from other circuit boards. The aluminum bars that the MOSFET's and diodes are attached to was really cheap at only a few dollars. Only other things I had to buy were the blank circuit board, diodes, nuts and bolts for the high current connections and some of the crimp-on terminals. Hoping to put it to use in a small electric kart of some kind. I have the batteries and everything ready to go, just needs a vehicle.
