After ~6 months of collecting and testing 18650 cells I have finally hit the magic number of 2800 cells all of which are ≥2200mAhs and ≤75mΩ.
So now I feel I can join the DIY-Battery-Project-Builds thread. Before I do that though I need to name my project
Since many of you have been so helpful with suggestions and advice I ask for your input on what I should name my powerwall.

As you all know I am an avid proponent of IR testing and maybe use that feature in the name.
Something like "Powerwall by IR" or "Low IR is not futile PW" or some acronym WWWoP (Wolf's Wonderful Wall of Power), IRofT (Internal Resistance of Things) etc. Big Grin


I enjoy working with you guys on my project "except Daromer" no just kidding Tongue he has many more years of experience in this than I do and I respect his opinions very much even when they don't make sense.  Huh
Cherry67 got me started on the IR idea and I followed it to the logical conclusion.
Korishan comes up with some great points very regularly.
Sean has some of that english dry tongue in cheek humor and you have to read his posts twice if not three times to get it but it is always there.
He has been very helpful in many aspects.
Mike the admin has been a great administrator and he is a busy guy.
Also all the others who read my posts jdeadman, watts-on, Oz18650, Crimp Daddy, Redpacket, Shawndoe, OffGridInTheCity, Geek, Ibiza, Bubba, chuckp,  Dallski, Solardad, DCKiwi, drbacke, 100kwh-hunter, winny, Chablis_m, Overmind, friedpenguin, Nemo, etc. etc. etc. oh and occasionally hbpowerwall.

All in all I am very grateful to be part of this great worldwide community.
I will be going on Vacation to Austria in the Salzburg area on June15th till July3rd to visit my mother so after that the build will begin.
If anyone needs something from the states let me know as shipping from europe is a lot cheaper if I bring it on my flight.

So let's come up with a cool name for my powerwall. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Thanks for your help.

One thing to say upon that theme, people like Daromer, whether the are just experienced and critical, or even stubborn declining (which Daromer is NOT) are really necessary (and "useful" ) during diving into something new-science or technical.

Or, in other words, in developing something new you do not need somebody who knows the same, thinks the same and agrees to everything you do. That is convenient, but not helpful.

It is one of my working principle all my life in business to look for a hard contradictor, because it enforces to improve in exploring and developing your target.

In that term, Daromer (and all other helpers, if you mentioned them or not) has/have done a fantastic job, if he does like it or not Big Grin Big Grin .

Due to the low IR all very small cells. Big Grin

As the OP I wrote
....................So now I feel I can join the DIY-Battery-Project-Builds thread. Before I do that though I need to name my project............

Since I have not started the "Build thread" and I only have just finished accumulating ~3000 good cells I do not have pictures of the build.
Therefore I was inquiring as to what to name it.
I do have pictures of the accumulated cells though.
 
There are 2 more brown cardboard boxes with 500 cells each hidden in another location.

Those cells must have a lot of resistance if you are going to use them for brakes...  Tongue

@Geek
I was looking for some regenerative braking to recharge the batteries.
