Hi from mid Michigan

I was just searching the internet for interesting 18650 stuff and found my way here!

Got to go look around now.

Welcome! Do you have a project in mind?

Not really,...
It started with not having a work radio that could pick up any good stations on a jobsite.
That graduated to a car radio in a small Samsonite luggage box.
Cheap setup but that's me.
Power came from a 20v dewalt at first. Then found that the 60v dewalt could last half the day!
Now I am thinking that I could just make my own battery to last the whole day.
Besides, I'm wasting power with a pass transistor voltage regulator and a temperature controlled
Pc fan.
Radio draws just over one amp hour. I got room in the box! It's going to happen!

Yea the fun is just starting!
Got about 70 18650's so far that are good as far as i can test at this moment.
Bunch of TP4056 Modules on there way with cell holders.
Thinking on buying or building some kinda constant current discharge tester.
I'm on my way!
