I watched a video earlier on spot welding fuse wires and I think that is the route I want to take but then I wonder why don't people do this over soldering onto the cells? It seems like a good idea if you want to keep your cells lifecycle intactFuse wire can be spot welded, or the nickel strip can have the fuse wire soldered to it and the nickel strip spot welded to the cell.
here is the video:No need to be sorry the closest I came to batteries before 5 years ago was changing them in car/truck,laptops,radios etc. Could you link the video you refer to above? i saw a video think it was one of lithuimsolar's where he spot welds a 3 cell parallel block then uses fuse wire i am not sure if he spot welded th fuse wire or soldered it. 3 cells would be taken out of the battery if one fuse were to burn. The nickel strip and fuse wire makes sense for huge packs think his were 300p.
Fuse wire can't be the series connection. The parallel Groups are either positive or negative. . This video shows a 14s pack that is the only difference yours is 10s iircthe red wire is the fuse wire forming the series connection. this is only for the top view, i will do the same for the bottom as well. hope it looks good
