mock battery

This block of wood is the same size and shape of the batteries I'll be using.  A friend in the battery business has convinced me that LiFePO4 chemistry will more economical in the long run, and much more fun, than flooded lead-acid.  Sealed lead-acid are even worse.  I'll be using 30 cells of this size to start off with.  Some will go under the hood and some will go in the trunk.


  1. What are the battery cell dimensions you are planing on using?

  2. 10.94 x 7.16 x 2.20 inches, 9.70 lbs
