PaulKennettThe hour long video I did on disassembling an e-bike battery has twice as many views as the 1 minute summary version!

Sometimes boring is more useful.

Cheers, Paul

Hey Paul, welcome back.
How did your long ride go?  Must be cuz u did that video live!

Pete,
No way! Think of all those ppl waiting for ur next post!
I mean, lets face it, ur like an 18650 God!

If you were in the USA and could just purse ur lips better, you could be a better president!

Mr Kennet,
I really wanted to do the pairs thing. You presented an excellent argument that had me convinced it could work.
But 2 things prevented me in the end.  1) I dont have a 3D printer or way to get brackets for pairs. 2) I found that at least 40% of the pairs I seperated had at least a .07v difference an hour after charging and seperation.
This is minor in the big picture no doubt.  But I wanted at least my first 2 packs to be just the best of the best cells.

Thanx Paul

This i agree totally on! If you need alot of water dont go for electric heating if you can. But if you have excess power not sent to grid do it!

Going to start uploading all my crappy videos that hit the cutting room floor so they will probably have comments, ratings & adds turned off. Don't know If it'll be a sub channel or just private videos linked through the forum. One is uploading now... and I hate it but I'll put it out there and see how it goes.

Could do a main channel (The one you have now) and then have a 2nd with uncut, unedited mixed stuff. Many people do that when they get "famous" like you Smile
