Hard to open Bosch pack
#11
Indeed every cell is worth fighting for.
Why you don't get a wooden dowel that is a tad smaller then the cell?
Small taps on the neg side, take a 2 pound hammer for the mass, it works better than a 1 ounce hammer with a lot of heavy taps.
just my two cents, hope this will help a bit
Still learning English. Learning Li ion and solar technology.
+/- 3500 Li ion cells harvested, none checked and counting.

Time is our enemy, must work to, the sun is our friend, must relax to.
With best regards

Tried something similar, but a bit too narrow and I didn't want to dent the cells too much. It's pushed to the back of my backlog at the moment. Laptop packs are more worth the effort as long as they are available to me.

On some, they also like to epoxy the cells into place.  Just slice the sleeve and push out the cell, then resleeve.
Good grief! I'll keep that in mind but I do value my time...
No. cells
