What/where to get copper wire.
#11
i use 0.6mm2 telephone jumper wire, untwist it, and take the plastic off with a stanley-knife
and solder 2 wires to every cell , so it is 1.2mm2
my surge draw is 1.3 amp per cell , regular max draw is about 0.5amp : devided by the number of stacks i will build..

Yikes, .6mm2 is around 20ga. Fusing current is 58A.

don't worry, it's my negative side that is on a total of 1.2mm2 (16-17AWG) per cell
on the positive side i use glass fuses of 3.15amp 
Cool
33kWh 14s192p batrium bms 3.6kWp (solar for now)
upgrade to 21kWp solar in 2months + 165kWh storage in 8 months
hybrid solar boiler 1000L + wood stove + heat pump
diesel genset 7.2kW for backup in winter 
plug-in hybride car (petrol in winter, electric in summer) planned next year
