The more of a pain issue is that on the 8v batteries the 'ears' on the flow-rite caps interfered with many of my cable runs... so I ended up sawing the ears off most of the caps. not difficult, but a pain. I wrote in to flow-rite to suggest that using the 'earless' design they have for industrial batteries would probbly be better for the typical EV-er.
