Hiya and welcome to the forum JB. There will be umpteen builds to get ideas from in the DIY section, unfortunately a lot of images in the posts will have gone when a file host many of us used stopped being free.

The 'go to' battery that most of us use(d) is in the link below, I didn't recommend them in the past as their cabling was round with a possibility in my mind to short them out when hardwiring as they don't have an isolating switch but they are now using twin side by side cabling that is safer for beginner fiddlers to cut.

Alternatively many of us used 18650 batteries - free if you have any old laptop battery packs you can breakdown. The main thing that fails in a lappy pack is the circuitry that balances each cell to the same power.

Anyway get a cushion fluffed up, slap the wifes ass for coffee on the hour every hour while you pass away a good few hours in the DIY section.
