I'm looking into that right now. I can order these with cell balancer connections, but those are really for the Radio Control people who have to manually charge. They are for trickle chargers only and aren't connected to the heavy capacity wires from your battery to your bike that would be an auto-shut off.

I have a cell balancer with a low voltage alarm that plugs into the balance connector on one of my test batteries. It's never gone off, because I've never had my voltage drop that low. I think I will abuse it and see what happens... I think this would be a great option to offer. Probably add $35+ to the total cost, but would offer peace of mind.
