>>Plausible approach, but you can put them all in series and do the 15 hrs at 1C.
>Typo !!!! - I believe that that should be 0.1C !!!!
>15 hours at 1C will boil them dry :-(.
>>Well... Take anything you find in the RC forums with a grain of salt.
>>These guys also recommend soldering directly to the cells, and even soldering them directly to each other!
>Indeed. Can be done - but often results in failure. Use tagged cells when you wish to join them together.
When I talk to them, they insist that this NEVER causes problems with the cells.
The cell makers tell me they'd rather not be in the same room with a cell that has had a failed vent. From what I've seen of my lovely Chinese cells, I'm inclined to go with the cell guys, and avoid close company with a pressurized steel can full of rocket fuel and strong alkaline.
