I’ve been teaching people to build custom DIY lithium batteries for years and have been building them myself for even longer. When I got started there was almost no info out there to help me learn how to build my own lithium batteries. Together with a few other like-minded individuals, I began a journey to learn what the heck I was doing. Thousands of batteries cells and many spot welders later, I’ve built countless batteries and collected a wealth of knowledge and research on the subject.
I began teaching others what I had learned. I wrote articles on the subject here on EbikeSchool.com and created a number of YouTube Videos on my Ebikeschool.com YouTube Channel to show people how to build their own lithium batteries.
All of that content was created free of charge and will always remain 100% free. I never want money to be an obstacle for anyone to learn something he or she is interested in.
At the same time, I also do this professionally and have to support myself as well. So I decided that in addition to the free content that I produce, I would write a book that goes much more in depth on all of the topics involved in building lithium batteries. The free videos and articles that I provide are a good start, but now I’ve written a much more professional guide in the form of my new book: DIY Lithium Batteries – How To Build Your Own Battery Packs.
The book is filled with everything I know about DIY lithium batteries and the skills needed to build your own lithium battery project. Here’s a list of the chapter breakdown:
Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Form factors of lithium cells
Chapter 3: Types of lithium cells
Chapter 4: Sourcing lithium battery cells
Chapter 5: Cell ratings
Chapter 6: Combining cells to make battery packs
Chapter 7: Safety
Chapter 8: Battery Management Systems
Chapter 9: Construction methods
Chapter 10: Battery layout and design
Chapter 11: Making battery connections
Chapter 12: Sealing the battery
Chapter 13: Charging lithium batteries
Chapter 14: Increasing cycle life
Chapter 15: Disposing of old lithium batteries
Chapter 16: Example battery building projects
I put a ton of work into this book. I tried tracking my hours when I began but lost track of it when the number quickly grew into the hundreds. This was truly a labor of love for me and I’m very excited to share this book with all of my followers here on EbikeSchool.com.
“DIY Lithium Batteries” now available on Amazon!
To thank you for supporting me and joining this community of ebike enthusiasts, I’ve set the initial price for the Kindle ebook version of the book at just $0.99 to allow you to pick up a copy for nearly free. (I had intended to offer a few download coupon but Amazon doesn’t make that easy). The paperback version of the book is also available for just $9.99 right now. Both of those prices will increase to their normal retail prices soon, but I’ll leave them at their low intro prices for a few more days as a thank you to my community here.
Also, you don’t need an actual Kindle e-reader device to take advantage of the cheaper Kindle ebook version. Amazon has a free app for all phones and operating systems to allow you to read Kindle ebooks on any device.
If you can’t afford it, then I totally understand and I recommend that you check out all of the free content that I have created. If you have benefited from my educational materials in the past and want to learn more as well as support my efforts, I’d love if you’d pick up a copy of my book and help make it possible for me to continue producing more educational content.
