Hi mate, do you think that harvested laptop batteries would be ok(all over 2000mAh)?

It would not work well at all, and it would not be ok.

What you need are old powertool cells. Laptop cells are low drain, while powertool cell are high drain, so you need powertool cells for a rebuild.

Anyone knows a good source for high drain batteries here in the UK?

Have you tried There's also queenbattery
