    18650 Powerwalls

    Ok I have little time for things these days, and I have a fb account purely for group interests and funny pages whilst on the... well you know where.... its easier then grabbing a magazine, phones often in my pocket
    I added yet another group the list of things I wanna do IF I ever get time...
    One group that really makes me interested is DIY Powerwalls, you know inspired by Elon Musks venturings

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/diypowerwalls/?fref=nf

    I almost cried the first time I saw that page, all those 18650s and not a mod to be seen!!!
    Still IF I ever get time its interesting what some are making from old laptop batteries
    theres a forum for safety info too, D.I.Y. Powerwalls - Building Tesla inspired 18650 Powerwalls.
    curious if anyone here has ventured into any of this?
    Just remember kids electrickery is not to be messed with, as vapers I'm sure most know but always needs to be said,

    enjoy!

    I'm finding AGM batteries are quite cheap, as the economy of scale pushes prices down. So I prefer spending my time and effort tinkering with other energy saving gadgets and inventions, that make efficient use of that power.

    $1148 for these https://www.aussiebatteries.com.au/b...-cycle-battery

    Although these are marginally better value at the moment https://www.aussiebatteries.com.au/b...-cycle-battery

    Pretty good prices. I keep an eagle eye on them, and usually snatch up bargains in the $1.50-1.60/ah range.

    Ah, I'd really like to do this. I'd want to do it right though, which might be a bit expensive in control electronics and batteries.
