    That looks like its from a video of someone building their own battery wall, or electric vehicle.
    It's common to use 18650's in those projects.

    Source?

    imho, he would have been better off using one of the many options for 18650 cell racks available out there in internet land.
    They're cheap, easy to work with, relatively compact and customisable to the size you're after. In a vehicle build, much less one that can fall over or be dropped; would not build it like that.

    His workmanship does not inspire confidence.

    It does inspire morbid curiosity though.
    "Go away and come back when you understand better." he said. He would not let me pass.

    Wire up a backpack of 18650's and walk around looking like one of the original Ghostbusters?
    Bill Murray! not that new horrible atrocity. If you really pushed it you could probably get a month, maybe month and a half?

    I was prepared to reply to this in strong agreement with a long and detailed response.
    I then deleted my long and detailed response as it would have completely taken this thread off on a tangent and possibly even started a hell of a debate.
    So here's the short version;

    To your last point, Yes.

    Yeah, just because it can be done doesn't mean it's a good idea...
