I made some quick end plates last night so I can hook the cells up to my powerlab charger. Nothing fancy, but they're quite similar to what I plan to use when the pack is assembled. I do have a slight concern about using the nylon threaded rod for a long length of cells (for a much larger pack), but for something small like this it should do just fine.


Just two plates of 6061 aluminum with holes drill on the ends for the nylon threaded rod to go through and clamp down on.



Plates installed. I'm not sure if I'm going to tap the plates for additional connections or what yet... We'll see.
