  1. As a professional I recommend one get a cheap spot welder. Soldering a battery can be somewhere between dangerous and expensive.

    This guy solders like a 15year old child. Those bonds will not last a single temperature swing or thru any vibration much above loud noise. The battery was not heated to 200F much less the 450-600F it may require to actually bond. Might as well use gorilla glue and tape.

    What a joke. Good luck. It may work for you but you will lose your ass on warranty work. Who am I kidding in this throw away society?
