'[EE]: NiMH Soldering'

There is a wealth of good information about soldering batteries that has been
accrued by electric model airplane (eflight) people.  They have been soldering
their own packs for many years.  One place to start is:
http://www.ezonemag.com/pages/efaq.htm#battery
The short answer is yes, but technique is important.  There is even a special
soldering iron tip that someone makes that looks like a two headed hammer
that helps.  Try bumming around the ezone archives or search on eflight,batteries,solder
and see what you get.  All kinds of jigs and safety info.

at high temp but short duration.

Thanks peter, Guess I would also need to use low-temperature solder
since I don't have a spot-welder.  Normally the thermal mass of the
battery head would means the battery need to be heated up first before
normal soldering is possible.

>Also, does your old battery pack comes with
built-in electronics (Smart battery)?
If so, you need to match the capacity of the
replacement battery, otherwise there will be
a mismatch as the electronics thinks that it
is X capacity while your battery is Y capacity.

Luckily there is no electronics for this one, just a therminister and
4 AA NiCD cells.

Cheers, Ling SM

I use a soldering pistol. 100 W, very cheap and quick.

Good. Looks like my 20W press 200W goot would do the job.
