Battery terminal extension suggestions

I'm starting to have too many wires hooked up to the battery and I want to make it clean and safe.

What is everyone using?

For lower power draw stuff, just use a blue seas aux fuse panel and run 1 heavy fused cable to the battery to power the panel. Consolidate the grounds somewhere off the battery. Nice and neat.

If you are talking big draw stuff like a winch you are best leaving them on the battery.

Here's an in cabin panel I added to mine.Interior Aux. Fuse Panel Install

Great job on sub panel. Very nice. I have wired several vehicles from the ground up and keeping your battery as clean as possible is a great thing..
