Hi all,

I got 2 Model 3 battery packs not far away from me that are salvaged from damaged cars, the price is very reasonable if you calculate it... it would cost about €0,55/per cell.

However the way the battery is constructed it is not possible to reuse the 4 "packs" as a whole and it is quite a bit of work to salvage individual cells as they are embedded in putty, glue and other compounds.

Assuming all goes well and I have individual cells, did any one already spot welded them? (I have kWeld)
Or does someone already built a complete battery setup with them?

The are constructed differently than 18650, especially the caps.
