Finally I have now more than 560 batteries together for my first PhilPowerwall (Phase 1)
All cells repacked with repackr.
Result, 7 packs with an average capacity of 2,280.9 mAh

I already requested the data sheet and I'll post it here as soon I receive it.
I'm not worried about the work. That's what most of us doing here.
