So I’ve been getting more and and more people (locally) asking me to build them a board. I’ve made one (and it’s just sort of “meh” to be honest… looking to dramatically improve)
With that, I really want to start consistently using 18650 cells! I recently made a 6s4p pack with soldering, but I don’t want to go through that with every board I make… it was a pain, and I’m not super confident in my joints lasting 100’s of miles of abuse. It’s not something I’d sell for sure.
Now, I just bought an Xcarve (so freakin stoked, 4 weeks can’t get here fast enough!!!) so I really don’t want to drop a ton on a spot welder… but all of this helps to build professional looking boards, so in the end the quality is priority.
what are the current reliable options that don’t totally break the bank? I know of JP’s, but it is out of stock and I don’t know how long the order wait is. I also am not a fan of making one from a microwave… there are some things I’m o.k. with trying, but that isn’t one of them
haha if I didn’t kill myself first, my parents would absolutely drill into me for messing with a microwave…
