There will be all bolts, blocks, spacers, connectors + pins, heat shrink wrap included.

I have two small plastic bags of hardware for each board. Will have to open & examine 16s boards in better light tomorrow, but everything looks good. Though I have a suggestion about shipping packaging...
IMPORTANT SUGGESTION FOR PARTS LOSS PREVENTION: I suggest taping the tiny plastic baggies of hardware to the inside of a much larger sized baggie (or envelope) too, so the tiny baggies can't slide around and get trapped or caught into the seams of the shipping box. The four end-seams of my (book?) box were not sealed by tape and bowed open creating an opening for the tiny parts baggies to slide into, so the tiny baggies might have been caught in those open seams and could have "leaked" & lost the hardware contents of small parts if trapped/caught cut & damaged at one of the four open end seams. It is definitely possible the tiny baggies could have been pulled out of the package or torn open at least partially & the contents lost. I suggest putting the tiny baggies inside a bigger baggie or big envelope inside the package to prevent this.There will be all bolts, blocks, spacers, connectors + pins, heat shrink wrap included.
I didn't get any shrink wrap, which was initially planned to be included in the kits? Is heat shrink available for my kit size of 16s? Is there anything else not included with the original plans for these kits???
Look forward to getting my cells to assemble the battery. This looks like a very good kit design, imo, of course, actual assembly & use will be the "true test" for a solid recommendation.
The conducting material on the circuit board is what grade aluminum or ??? Thanks for offering these kits.

No problem. (I forgot reading that.)

I know Ohzee has cells now to make his kit, so I'm looking forward to otherDoc & Ohzee for their assembly experience & tips.
Ohzee, please take video of assembly & post please! 24s needs to be on video.

The two corners were open and I agree with DeVries that at least the outside rim of the package needs to be taped all around. It (the kit) is beautiful design and the hardware fits the threads like it is supposed to! Simply a great job,agniusm! I hope you make a fortune on these kits.As I assemble my 2 6S batteries I will take photos.

If you use the same box, then just put the tiny baggies inside a big paper sealed envelope or use a sandwich size zip-lock seal baggie. Nothing can slip out & is double-walled protected, and you can use the same box.
Hey, I want to 2nd otherDoc that these are very nice kits too. If anyone is interested in your kits, then I recommend they order now! I think the quality & design of these kits justify ordering now. (I just wish I had my cells now to assemble these 16s batteries. I will be doing so in about 2-3 weeks.)agniusm wrote:The blocks are 6082 T6 alloy, not extreamly good as conductor, but 1xxx series alloy which has conductivity of 62 (compared to copper's 100) is very soft and not possible to thread or machine etc.
But the blocks don't need to carry any load anyway, right???
otherDoc & ohzee: If you shoot video of your assembly, then I can edit the video for you free & upload to youtube.

It is just a matter of soldering in your pins and connecting the leads to the battery with your 6S plug. I'll bet they could get you balance wires in a week to Lithiuania.
