DenCo™ - Can you believe it?

This battery turned out to be the basis for several other batteries. It incorporates a new 100A “slim BMS” that I found from Aliexpress. I also integrated neoprene padding to help cushion the overall pack, although this padding is a false sense of security as the battery cell holders are very fragile and will crack with any impact even with padding. This Mark 5 version has fused main output, extensive amounts of kapton tape to protect the cell heads, and uses LiitoKala cells.
