" Hi,
after the new crimp connectors arrived finally saturday evening (so much for ships overnight) i was set to tackle the last cell.
first of, a last mock-up topplate was milled from scrap to check the sit of the e-stop in relation to that last cell.

No more excuses.

This is where all has to go on to:
Attachment 8587

Place the last cell on top but set slightly back from bus bar to avoid shorts during the next step:
Attachment 8586

attache sens wires and don`t get confused, as there is now no visual with the underlying cell:
Attachment 8588

slide cell forwards and connect with the rest of the pack, put on fiberglass protectors, which mainly serve to prevent shorting when getting the pack into the bike-frame.
As can be seen the left one was milled to the wrong sice
Attachment 8589
cannot be bothered tonight, gonna cut it tomorrow, will connect up the e-stop then too.

Stay tuned "

" Hi Stevo,

yup thatīs the plan
Well actually the plan had been to fabricate all Parts and modules during christmas hollidays. Ready to be installed late winter early spring - we want to ride as much as possible don`t we?
Plan fell through as i got stalled again
I have crimping connectors here 35mm2 for m6 but the things fall of the cable after crimping them... rechecked with an 35mm2 M8 and it stays on rock solid.
Anyway found some that will hopefully fit, should be here by tomorrow.

As work started again progress will slow down naturally.
Nothing to worry - got 90% done within my planning. And winter just started..
Hope to have the batterie module done next by next weekend.
So stay tuned

Flo "

" Here is an interesting article that was in my newspaper yesterday regarding QuantumScape's new solid-state EV battery design. Unlike previous announcements regarding such batteries, this one looks like it will be going into production as it is apparently backed by Volkswagen. The QuantumScape's plan is to put their new battery into volume production and into VW EVs by 2025. "

" Hi
had a dab at the most tricky bit , only took three trials
might not look as bad..
Attachment 8580Attachment 8581

but it has to fit in there perfectly:
Attachment 8578Attachment 8579

also added two tiny holders for support, so in the worst case of breaking, the horizontal part cannot touch the underlying bus-bar.
Attachment 8582

As the glue for those holders needs thorough curing i took advantage of the fine weather to cut the tank.

Tank had been washed 6 times before and aired for a couple of days. Better safe than sorry i did a final test sticking in a burning candle, attached to a long rod. A trick i had learned from my neighbor.
No surprises i then basically dug the tank into the snow to keep the heat of the paint.
Works brilliant
Attachment 8583
Still need cleaning up but i have to get a different disk for the tool first..

Stay tuned "
