Hello from Texas
Hello all,

My name is William and I am from the great State of Texas in the USA.

I am very excited to be here and look forward to discussing the 18650 life will all of you.

I have collected a fair number of old laptop batteries and am in the process of breaking them apart and testing them.  I am a complete newbie when it comes to this and look forward to sharing this journey with all of you.
Welcome. please have a good read of the FAQ section. we have compiled lots of info there and may answer a good portion of your questions
Thank you. I have started reading through the FAQs and indeed there is a LOT of great information there.

I want to give a shout out to HBPowerwall and Jehugarcia for their incredible youtube channels that I have been watching for about the last year and a half.

I am interested in finding more channels that you guys would recommend.

Also, would like to know if there are more Texas people here, specifically in the Dallas area. I live in Waxahachie, Texas which is about 35 miles south of Downtown Dallas.
Hi from Longview TX

Nice to meet you braytron.  Good to see some else from Texas here.  Even though you aren't *that* close it is still good to see someone in the same timezone.  LOL  How long have you been doing this?  Have you gotten anything built yet?  

I am just starting and trying to figure it all out.
