Recycling 18650 Cells to Build a DIY Powerwall
Sometimes I really need to step back and take time to be amazed by the Internet. A few days ago I watched a live stream of a man sitting in his garage on the other side of the world ripping apart lots of old laptop batteries to recover the 18650 cells inside.
Paul Kennett lives in Wellington, New Zealand and his YouTube channel follows his project to build a 48 Volt 10 kWh DIY Powerwall from those recycled cells.
The DIN rail and Battery Management System mounts have been created from his own design and then 3D printed.
