It can be very dangerous having 2 batteries in parallel that we're properly matched, as current can flow into a lower battery and cycle, potentially causing an explosion.SumCanadianGuy wrote: ↑Fri Sep 01, 2017 4:09 pmI have 2 Samsung phone batteries wired together in mine. One is 3100 and one is 2000 so I effectively have a very slim 5100mAh in my unit. I literally just wired it up and am currently charging it so I am not sure how long it will run for yet.
EDIT: Such beautiful. Much cable managed. So Samsung. Wow.
Yeah, I build batteries frequently. Haven't had any explosions yet, thankfully, but I know there is always that risk. Did have one get warmer than I liked once so I got rid of it (18650 with a bad wrap. I was able to snag one of Dextech's batteries so I'll be using that once it arrives.
