    Good find, they explained most of it. This is pretty simple, I learned it in HS honors physics. LOL

    Basically, it's the old school Christmas lights vs. the newer ones.

    It's and isolater. Basically allows you to charge however many batteries you want, then you can shut off the car and only use the extra batteries to power things and not have to worry about draining your main battery.

    It's easy to wire, just run some 4g power cable to the back from the battery up front, then connect that wire to the isolater, then to the next battery.. You run one wire from a power source that turns on off with the truck to the isolaters to turn them on/off.

    There is instructions on how to wire them up on the site. And you can find them cheaper if you look around, I paid 60$ each for mine.
