Will the heat from my battery pack melt electrical tape?

I know electrical tape is usually good to around 500F, I could buy better heat resistant tape but don’t want to unless I have to.

All the red circles I have are electrical tape covering up wires that I soldered together.

Just want to make sure the heat won’t melt and cause a short/fire.


I dont know BUT for 10 bucks or less you could get a shrink tube kit off Amazon thatll make your ish look more pro and put yur mind at ease.

That pack looks legit AF. Just sayin…

The answer to look up is the max temperature a li-ion cell can handle before thermal runaway. 500F is 260 Celsius. You’ll lose your pack before saving the electrical tape.

Copy that. Thanks.


I have kapton tape. Guess I’ll be adding that

I’d say the adhesive is more of an issue. The tape might hold a high temperature, but the tape starts to unwrap easily/easier if the adhesive heats up.
