I remember a post from Loco Bill about building your own packs.  The commercially made packs are way overpriced.  Huh?

I lost my links as to where to purchase batteries to build my own packs.  I know Loco Bill builds his own.  Any help? Grin

Bill,

I took your suggestion and taped the batteries together. The 0.993v battery did charge to 4.1v but the other stayed right at 3.79v, no change.  I will try again when the holders arrive.  I suppose at 3.79v the battery is still ok.

Hi Bill - Rodney

I received my GTL batteries today.  All except one was within acceptable voltage - 3.79 to 4.10.  The one battery was at 0.993 Volts.

I have to wait for my battery holders.  My Cordless Renovations charger will only charge 7.4 & up.  I will attempt to charge the two lowest when the boxes arrive before I contact the seller.

Any other suggestions?  Or wait and see. Huh? Undecided

Thanks Rodney,
I think I will stick to my smart charger from Cordless Renovations.  Hope to be sending my K soon. Grin Grin

Rodney,

I was reading the manual on the Tenergy charger that you use.  I am a bit confused.  I see the balance port and the small board attached.  Since there are various sizes of connectors on that board, how is it connected to the battery pack?  Am I missing something? Huh? Huh? Huh?

I did not want to order until I had some questions answered.

Bill,

I give up trying to find the 4 stack holders.  I was thinking about trying to glue the 2 battery holders (plentiful) and rewire. You would have the ability to stack 4 batteries and still change a single cell.

What's your opinion?

Bill,

Thanks for your quick reply.  I can use a couple of those flat holders but I would like to find some stack holders as well
If I find some I will let you know

Thanks

Bill,
I see in your post that you held a clinic about making these packs.  Was this online?  If it was, would you be so kind as to send me the link or any other info.  You are right, these battery holders are hard to find
Thanks once again

Hello all,

Since following this tread I have decided to build my own.  One question, after looking at all the different battery holders, are the 18650 lithium batteries the same size as AA?  They sure do look the same.  I ordered mine from the same source that Bill got his.
Now looking for the holders

Thanks

Look up ana.kramer (seller) on ebay.  Al is always listing these for the coaches and observations at reasonable prices.
