Wow! Hats off for what you've accomplished.

Did you spot weld 936 LG 18650 cells together? Eeew... what a lot of work!
Those are lithium oxide? How do you protect them?

I'm looking for a small PHEV parallel pack on my Insight, just to boost FE not go full electric (the EV motor on the Insight is too small for that anyway).
I'm thinking LiFePO4 and about 1-1.5 kWh, portable, charging at home and at work.
Any advice?
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.13 Gm or 0.08 MM.
