Battery Hookup continues to add different products. If you haven't checked them out in a while I'd suggest it. They have quite a good selection right now.

Their newest item is Model 3 cells.

Just got in a batch of BH modem batteries. 4 hours of stripping and prepping last night and I'm into testing. I don't remember exactly but I think I only had 3(?) that arrived with 0.00V.

For 2170 cells, what kind of tap welder would you recommend? Assuming that's the route you'd take. I've looked at various DIY welder builds.

Me personally I'm going solderless/no spot welding so I'm not sure on any recommendations.

Just press/contacts? I wasn't aware you could do that with high current applications.

We shall see. *evil laugh*
Nah my cells are only 5CA/3.75CA. Also, the controller says 35A max. So it will probably peak to start the motor and then taper off lower.

I'm doing this but making my own by ordering hardware and 3d printing the caps.

They will weld themselves if there are loose ones

The goal here is to have a battery pack that can be easily disassembled to be worked on. A lot of people complain about having a hard time servicing 18650 packs to find a dead cell when they are all welded together.
