Hey all.

Wink 
Hey all, I'm from the UK. I love doing diy stuff especially with 18650/26650/ & lifepo cells if i can get hold of them. I have around 250-300 recycled 18650 cells that I intend on building a 24v portable power generator with these as a rough go. I bought two liitokala charges last week & they have assisted my imax b6 v2 & opus bt-3100 in charging them cells.  I have ordered 140 brand new  26650 5000mah cells & I'm waiting for them (40 days or so) so I can build two 24v portable power generators that i can maybe also hook together for an EBike battery. Oh & by the way thank you all for your knowledge & work! I'll keep you updated as I go!

Welcome buddy, sounds like you have a good start on the project, pitty about the postage times - but I guess it's much cheaper that way. Plan on testing all new cells also?

Thanks HB yeah definitely will be testing them! Will take a while with 7 at a time on 4 chargers(2 liitokalas, 1 opus bt3100 & 1 imaxb6v2) but I'll get there lol
I am ordering that spotwelder & lipo battery today with help from my other half!

Might pay to do them all on one device - 3 devices gets you three results.. try one cell in each slot across all slots and you'll be shocked at the difference

Will do & thanks for that HB. As we can only get 2 26650 cells in an opus or liitokala. 2 cells in 1 charger will take me 70 days with 14o cells LOL
