    Packs assembled:
     

     
    Every battery pack I assemble, I almost always make improvements to the pack design. This time was no exception. 
     
    1. The pack has wire runs that are hot glued down in order to serve as a strain relief and to keep the cell balance wires from popping off. 
     

     
    2. Each balance wire that connects to a solder point is covered in another layer of hot glue to prevent the wires from snapping off their solder points. 
     
     a layer of electrical tape has been added between the two 7S sections of cells. 
     
    3. Finally, the entire pack has been wrapped in a 2mm thick insulation foam upon assembly. Before I used to just duct tape the pack up as-is, but I was having problems where the 14AWG round copper busbars would rip through the duct tape over time from wear and tear, and I would eventually have to replace the tape. The foam should create an even barrier and should help to pad the connections. 
     
    On another note, I tested if the ATC fuses would fail in the event of a short circuit. I am pleased to report that yes, they do fail and prevent the whole pack from being a bomb. The bad news is These are ATC fuses meant to run on 12v, not 52v so rather than the fuse wire just breaking as what would happen in a typical fuse, the fuse wire just kind of explodes and the ATC fuse is charred on the inside. 
     
    No, its not pretty. But it does work. 
     
    I will be placing this pack under a 20A continuous load test after it finishes charging. Most of my packs get to around 60C during this test but hopefully this one will operate at a lower temperature since I am using only high drain power tool batteries. 
     
    This is my old Samsung 28A 12S8P battery pack. Over the weekend when I was riding, a balance wire broke internally so I had to remove the protective cover and repair the pack again. This pack now has the insulating foam installed as well.  
     
    This pack is made from old laptop cells so it does get quite hot under load (70C just sitting there, 40C on my ebike wind passing over the battery tends to help a ton). It still performs well in my tests and doesn't sag too badly when I'm using it. 

     
    One more thing. 
     
    I am upgrading from XT60 to XT90 RC connectors, so my old XT60 gear is now obsolete as I am using higher current connectors now. Now sure what I will do with all my old XT60 gear. maybe i'll send it all to @Hackentosher or something.
