I just made a couple of battery packs as my first time like two weeks ago. 

You guys should have tried diy spot welding the cells together with the nichrome strips.

That would have made for a hilarious video. Especially if you made the welder using a car battery like I did.

I will remember that, for when I go 100% battery based PC shenanigans. XD

I wouldn't trust Linus with a welder... Let alone letting him getting one close to a battery...

Check out the VRUZEND battery kit we used: http://geni.us/eC9SB

Buy lithium batteries on Amazon: http://geni.us/Sm9jKPQ

 

Hey @nicklmg, why you don't develop some Lithium Battery like this, but to replace those of UPS?
 

Something like for this "APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500VA" (BR1500GI)
http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=BR1500G

To replace this: Compatible Battery Pack for APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500
https://www.amazon.com/UPSBatteryCenter-Compatible-Battery-Back-UPS-Warranty/dp/B00ZP7AU12
 

A LOT of your followers will thank you greatly!
 

Best regards,
 

Marco

Won't work, you would have to remove the lithium batteries every time to charge or modify the unit, most UPS units use lead batteries which is why they are heavy and take so long to charge.

Plus to use the 18500 batteries mentioned in this video to create a 1500 VA could require large amounts of batteries, and would not be cheap.

Hi @Egg-Roll, you can verify that the BR1500G have a "External Battery Pack Compatibility":

Lead again, you could create a Lithium version of it but would still be ridiculously expensive and would still need a special charger to charge the batteries and assuming the unit doesn't produce errors and refuses to charge you would have to yank out the battery pack to prevent issues including fire. Could create a kill switch to prevent charging, but I doubt many would actually go for it when you could just go out and buy a second one or bigger one.

Instead of using metal cans, why didn't they use LiPo pouches?

Way better show!

no, we should not let LInus near high voltage tools ever.


to err is human, to really mess things up requires an IP.

Before Linus killed them with his epicness 😱 Either that or he sent back the batteries he shorted out and they went boom...

So someone should take his Volt away then?
