No doubt about it I could make a few dollars right now I'm
just feeling my way around.....very cautious I want to make
sure any batteries I send are completely satisfactory....
Maybe you'd like to try a set Wooferhound ?
Anyway on with some details....
for an 18 volt cordless they pay only about $6 for postage & handling
and they get 3 stacks (5 in a stack) and some ribbon linkage.
continuing from reply #4 and glancing briefly at #7 to see how
I arranged them at first but now do it this way basically .....
They are lettered A1& A2, B1&B2,C1&C2, etc.
cutting the tabs between the pairs only
then next step taking one pair at a time cut the connecting
ribbon with scissors and fold over and it looks like this
after they are spliced back together.
after all 7 pairs are spliced back together they are turned
upside down and the first pair with the negative end in the
center and + toward the bottom, now next pair with a slight
gap (so you can see that it's the next pair) and the negative
close to the + of the first pair, same way with the next pair.
when they are arranged just right they are bundled with a
now the pairs are tabbed and soldered together.....plus to negative, plus to negative
the bottom cell (negative) is the first of the second bundle,
on the second bundle the top middle will be the positive
this is how the cells on this one particular brand of 18 volt is
arranged and of course others may differ.
Hope this is clear to every one....
