So I saw this post over on
I don’t want to shit all over this guy, but what advice would you give?
Things I see wrong:
poor quality spot welds
series welds done first, then parallel welds
balance leads sandwiched between cells
no fish paper anywhere
no cell insulators
Or maybe I’m crazy.
Didn’t cut the corners either. There are alot of sharp spots poking up thats just begging to cut through anything around it.
that thing is a ticking timebomb. the only thing holding that pack together is that bit of hotglue/silicone…jesus what is wrong with people
I try and avoid it, but sometimes you see something so egregious…
Poorly made, so many things wrong with this pack.
If he’s lucky a series connection will break and it will stop working…
Hopefully nothing bad happens especially in public
When someone wants to build a battery I always stress to do reasearch and study as much as possible before you buy anything to start.
I wouldn’t ride that, that’s for sure.
I’d ride it lol. YOLO!!! If the pack doesnt kill me, then I authorize humane disposal of me for saying yolo… Lol
You take that back now. Respect for you is draining faster than this battery pack will. Lol!
At least he won’t put it on top of a metal table
This is the Best example for cutting costs at the wrong edges
Omg…thats why I stay off of reddit for advice on esk8.
Totally didnt link the thread…
I stopped using a glue gun a long time ago, the glue is too brittle for esk8. It breaks away and often pulls the cell plastic sleeve away exposing the can. Reinforced tape is stronger and more flexible.
Are you talking about glass fibre tape? I was thinking about using that instead of silicone
biggest problem I see is no cut edges and no cell insulator rings.
Im trying to make a mountain board battery using Samsung 3000mah 30q 15a 18650 batterys does anyone have a link to where i could find real battery that wont break the bank. also has to ship to Canada Im doing a 10s 4p configuration.
Some places call it fibreglass tape yes.
