Dear Jeff Kruse , i find your witch hunt against LiPo batteries and me very stupid and irritating.. The fact that i have to reply to you attacking me about batteries is completely dumb
rule #1 Dont be a dick , and your being a dick
But i will answer you once last time since you cant understand batteries, and you say your over on CPF , but i doubt you read any of the threads there with people building LIPO packs for dive lights on the dive forum, and flashlight people..
My pack holds 4 18650 batteries.. i use panasonics and ultrafire cells .. Protected !!!!!
I use this holder http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Key ... EmvYKrE%3d
Aalska Herb dive light Only holds 4 batteries Not 8..
If one of those cells goes out or bad , or doesnt charge , Guess what ?? NOTHING, the light doesnt turn on.. and the battery gets thrown away, and you use a new battery.. If you put 4 batteries in series and one battery is dead, It does Nothing!!! Nada .. no reverse charg no explosion...If i put 3 batteries at 4.3 volts and the last battery at 2.o volts in the pack.. It does nothing but discharge at the same rate.. due to the PCB.. how do I know ? ive been building these packs for 7 years DUDE.. 7 years and its not a big deal .. at all..In fact there have been 7 divers here on this board useing this system , with 100 % NO ISSUES.. thats Impressive
youre like the Boy who cries wolf .. and there is no wolf here on nwdc , 18650 batteries get sold all over the world , and many people in the world use them in battery packs .. protected and unprotected. to come on this Board and start acting like you are the battery Police , shows you dont know what your talking about.. and you dont..
you dont build Build or work with 18650 batteries, PCB,s and soldiering of Packs..
