⚡️DIY Powerwall Project – ep10 – May the 4th Be With You (2019) ⚡️

Happy Star Wars Day! As a safety measure, I got some acrylic panels to put on the outside of the packs to keep from shorting them out if they touch each other once connected. Please share the link below with friends and family.

⚡️DIY Powerwall Project – ep6 – Bus Bars (2019)

BUS BARS! I talk about making bus bars and how I’m planning to connect everything together. You won’t want to miss it! 😀

⚡️DIY Powerwall Project – ep5 – Cell Packing (2019)

Cells are tested and sorted, time to put them in the cell holders. There is an online tool to help.

⚡️DIY Powerwall Project – ep4 – Opus BT-C3100 Fan Mod & Test (2019)

Power2Spare has large, brushless fans for keeping the Opus BT-C3100s cool while you are processing cells. They cut the cycle time down vs the stock fans and work even better on the 1,000 mAh setting. The mod is simple, but I did have issues. Also shows test results.
