Interesting project

We had a phone call yesterday from a bloke looking for “dead” laptop batteries. We normally recycle these, but based on our conversation will now be keeping them for him.

He plans to convert a VW camper van to electrical power, and is using the good cells from laptop batteries to act as the power source. A laptop battery is made up of several smaller batteries connected in series to get to the required voltage, and normally only one or two of these fail.

The idea is to find the good ones and make them into a battery powerful enough to give 100 miles or so between charges.

As we love to make things, and recycle as much as possible, we were happy to help, and will be keeping all laptop batteries which come our way to aid in this project 🙂
