AveRage Joe Show Laptop Battery Giveaway!!! Comment about your Build!!!
#31
Hello I'm a member and Live in the USA. I'm soon to work on my very first Powerwall. I do not have many batteries about 24 of the 18650ED batteries mostly from the Dollar store and a few dead batteries i found 2 laptop battery packs i took apart. I only saw AverageJoe video recently after searching on youtube about DIYPowerwall and thought his sense or humor was cool. My wife said he's my twin brother in that department Smile

I always wanted to build my own DIY Powerwall but don't have the batteries or wiring for it. So maybe one day i will save enough money to get some more batteries. I just recently went back from being disabled.  and the only money i got that comes in goes to medical bills rent and food. I'll be happy But overall one day to build my own I also have no solar panels or inverter yet but getting there. Thank you Sad

I'm in seattle wa., And I am just getting started. Been watching all the videos I can , and learning. I have got 200 cells over 2000 mah probably another 400 from 1600 to 1900 mah. looks like it will take a couple of years to have a 48 volt set up.

Hello there. I am joining from Turkey. 48 volt 3200 Watt inverter, and two 250 watt solar panels. I am here to replace the lead acid with the urine 18650. I plan on a battery for the 14S 80P. I have 218 pcs right now. I bought the Liitokala Lii500 for testing tomorrow. I'll start the tests. I have had amateur experiences before, but I learned many technical details in this forum. I watch lots of videos. Although I do not understand your language, I follow the subtitles. AveRage joe also thanks for the insurance tests.

Now that the Giveaway for this thread is over with, I'll my project:  

I'm planning on a 48V 100KW system for my house.  I'm just about 18 months into the build, and I have built out 14 packs just like Peter's, for roughly a 10KW system.  My min mAh rating is 2100, and my average pack build out is 2350 to 2450mAh.  I currently have enough cells for a 40KW system, but I'm running into a time crunch factor on other fronts.  I suppose my major hang up is that I do not have a solar system nor any "free" way to charge the batteries except using the grid, which is NOT an option. So my next course of action is to get a solar system bought and installed, and the electronics to go with it and move forward from there.  Meanwhile the batteries keep piling up.

Hey there, I'm new to the DIY Powerwalls forums, but I've always loved thinking about creating a self-sufficient living system. For the past two years was living in my 30ft 1989 Rexhall Airex RV with all the trimmings : Over those two years I lived entirely off the grid. On the electrical end I was able to do this with 3 12v 150w Solar Panels, a SMAKN Intelligent LMS 40A 12V / 24V Liquid solar controller, two 12v 100ah gel batteries and two 6v Trojan t105s.  My wife and I recently had a new addition to our little family Smile  Unfortunately, while my wife and I are able to get by with dc fans, our daughter could use a little extra climate control. So I came up with this plan: , but instead of buying the LiFeYPO4 batteries, I figured I could make my own 18650 powerwall. I am currently harvesting 18650 cells from dead laptop batteries and the going is slow, but it'll be worth it in the end and my little family will have a heck of an RV for our outdoor adventures Smile

That is a great story!!! Congrats on the new addition! Yeah harvesting, capacity checking and soldering all take a lot of time but the end reward is gonna be Awesome!!! Hope to see your progress along the way.
