Shon's Powerwall
#1
Hello all, 

I've been poking around here and there, I need to start a thread with my stuff, so here is what I have for now. I will add to this thread till it's finished, then update as updates are needed. 

Let me show you all the batteries

 

There's 1200 batteries there. I decided to go with a 15s80p setup because I'm getting the 2,000 watt Aims Inverter that accepts up to 64 vdc. I'm in the US so my power requirement is 120VAC. I will not be making 240 VAC yet. I will eventually, when I actually own a house that needs it. I have the inverter on order but it's backordered and I'm waiting for Amazon to give me a shipment date. 

I started this project in October and I'm already welding together my packs. It's been a lot of work, but I have the time to do this and it's actually quite fun. Today, I finished welding 5 packs with the Sunko 787A+ welder. 



This welder works "alright." I had a really hard time at first to get anything to work with it. I ended up filing a little slit into the copper probe and spreading the connectors so they fit tighter into the unit. Peter Mathews complained about the connector not fitting into the unit properly and I experienced the same thing, but it's easily fixed by spreading out the little leaf spring thingys and shoving them in. 

I'll finish this post with a series of pictures along the way. I'm going to eventually try out the YouTube thing, but I'm actually boring and don't think anyone wants to watch. Enjoy.


First batteries gathered.
