eBay seller with great deal on LG 18650's

(1/8) > >>

Just wanted to drop a note incase anyone was interested and I hope I am not breaking any forum rules, if so please delete this:

FYI: An eBay seller, "alarmhookup" has a huge lot of used LG 18650 Lithium Ion packs. There configured at 36V@ 4.4ah stock from the old ebike or whatever they pulled them from. A YouTube guy, "EV Samba" has purchased a batch and done a video on his capacity testes etc.

I emailed the seller and was told they have about 500,000 cells left from the original 2M. I am trying to arrange a very large purchase (at least 50,000 cells) directly and will be picking them up from their NJ warehouse.

Again, just a FYI for anyone interested. I haven't got them in my hands yet to verify but it seems like a great deal for all us DIY Powerwall guys/gals and anyone who builds EV packs. Tom is the sellers name and he'll let them go for $1 each. Once I get there and I am able to conduct my capacity, but more importantly ESR tests, I'll report back with the results. I'll make a video of the tests if I can. 

I do not know the sellers and I will not profit in anyway by sharing this info. I just think 2200mah, LG 18650 cells for $1 each is a pretty good deal. If this post violates any forum rules please delete it and please don't reply with negativity, I am just trying to help anyone who may be interested. (<--- I get my feelings hurt pretty easy for a hardened combat veteran).

Thanks for the info. Have you been able to test any yet?

I was wondering how these are configured to get 36V?

you mean 10 in series and two of those banks in parallel. Yes, that is how you could do it.

But it looks like there are 5 banks of 4 cells in parallel.

- and that is what is confusing me.

Also, his ad says they are new, not used.
