Plano 2 pistol case + Dewalt 28v LiFe battery makes a nice setup.   :)

How does that battery hold up. What are you starting?

Lasts quite a long time, they're 2.3 Ah A123 cells.  Balancer is built in, throw it on the DeWalt charger and forget about it.  I crank my 90's no problem, lots of zip.

 

I don't think the 28v is available any more but they come up on FleeBay sometimes.  There might be a replacement, I'm not sure.

Nice setup you have... Does the lid close with the starter handle on?

Yup.  The top is filled with foam and cushions it.  

 

Those batteries might seem a little pricey but if you keep you eyes open you can snag them for $50, charger can be had for $30:

I've used 2 of them now for over 8 years and they're still going strong.  Here's the original build thread if you're interested:
