    Interesting. I wonder how that compares to a similar Li-ion cell. Also it’s a shame there wasn’t a close-up on the markings of the battery in that video to know what it is exactly. I don’t imagine all cells are equal.

    The battery packs from the article, for instance, are not constructed from cylindrical cells, but from large thin and flat square cells. The cathode material appears to be unique as well, as far as I can tell; who knows what’s in those blue cylindrical cells.

      You can look at other videos in his channel that answer your doubts. 18650 battery cells are usually connected together into battery packs and BMS, and the industrial process is pretty standardized. Just like Li-ion you can have different cell structures, but the inside remains the same.
