If all goes well, I just bought 95 laptop batteries for €20.

To get them here, I paid €80 for courier shipping, as none of the normal shipping companies want to touch a 34 kg box full of li-ion with a 10 ft pole, unless they're packed in an extremely specific way, which they aren't.

Anyway, "5kwh" worth of used laptop batteries, with a bit of luck, some 2.5-3kwh of useable cells, for €100. thats cheap.
The goal is to assemble a plug-in pack and then buy a hybrid car to put it in. If I can get it big enough to do all the range I want (15 or more kwh), I might even go full EV for almost all my driving.
