Some Monolith Battery Builds

I did these two recently. The 2 cell flat is for irishknots of the Howling Commandos, the 3 cell "triad" configuration is for a local to go on his Nitron primary and replace a clunker brick-sized 12V nicad pack of the same capacity that has faded away to nothing.

Both are Samsung INR18650-20R 2000mAh, which is my current go-to hybrid cylindrical cell, cheaply available, and having an impeccable service record and as low an IR as any other cell in that form factor.

And a small sample of the packs I have made:


  1. Where did you get the batteries?

    1. The cells? From a supplier. They are easy to find. Try googling.

      I have specialized equipment to assemble packs though. If you want to use these cells in a pack application without having a pack made you need a high-current cell holder.
