    Has anyone used or heard about cell level laser fusing?

    BlueSwordM here. After watching one of Jehugarcia's videos, I looked at the comment section, and I found someone talking about cell level laser fusing being employed by an Austrian company, along with other techniques like immersing the cells inside of a non conductive liquid, to get 18650/2170...

    18650 bubbling from the inside

    Hi guys. So I have a problem. While charging one of my red Sanyo 18650s, I noticed some bubbling noise from it, and noticed a small tear. In a panic, I took it out and I felt a nice oily scent in the air, and put it in sand. Is it completely dead? And what might have been the source of the...
