Followed this build and built my own pack out of NCR18650PD cells, so 17.4Ah!. Thanks for the detailed write up Whitepony!
Im still waiting for my fuses and bigger shrinkwrap. Silly me, I ordered 150mm wide shrink wrap thinking it will fit perfectly well it doesn't.... IT SHRINKS, so why didn't I order 200mm wide???
Placed my balancer cables into shrink wrap without shrinking it, just to give some protection. Will still add tape over the nickel strip in the cable channel.
Doubled up on the positive wire as well. Its high quality 1,5mm^2 copper wire. Should be good for 15A but from my testing of my Bamboo Gen 2 I found that im pulling about 16-20A when going full throttle most of the time. So I thought Id better double up on it just in case.
Still need to add the positive charging lead.
I now have placed some plastic spacers between the cell blocks. Pulled these spacers from laptop packs and their pretty neat. Planned to include these from the start but forgot them when I was actually building the pack in the end. Managed to squeeze them in between all blocks but number 1 and 10.
Quite happy with my results considering this is the second pack I have ever built.
I used a lot more nickel strip then you did, Didnt want to risk anything.
How has your pack been holding up though?
Have you had any issues with welds breaking from flex in the board etc? cell wraping coming off? Anything along those lines that could be a safety hazard? The carbon fiber sure doesn't flex a lot but im a bit concerned.
Will test my pack thoroughly before putting it inside the board. I really don't want it to burn down
