All I have is time on my hands. I am/was certified in Hybirds & Electric automobiles. They have very elaborate systems. The Tesla packs contain about 1,100 18650 batteries and they use "every" bit of available space for these batteries. They have always fascinated me.
I have a new DVOM on the way as my current one won't measure mAh's over 5000mAh's. Interesting for a tool that will measure voltage up to 600v's, but not mAh's over 5k.
The key will be mAh's, will I be able to obtain <5000mAh's? If it does work out, I am going to try a pack in my 450.
I may even experiment with a few bad LiPo batteries. Most that are bad only have one cell that's the problem. We will see.
I will let you know,
DennisPS: I AM NOT ADVISING or ENCOURAGING ANYONE TO EXPERIMENT OR WORK ON THESE Lion/LiPo BATTERIES.
I am just discussing MY project plus seeing if anyone has done likewise. There may be someone out there that just might STOP me from experimenting.
I have a family member who works for a Worldwide company who is telling me their experimenting with batteries that will put LiPo's to shame. I can't wait to see if it works out.
