DIY Arduino Battery Spot Welder
I just started Looking into building EV’s. My first project is an Electric Skateboard. The one thing that can hold you back especially on a large EV project like a car is batteries. Buying premade battery banks is expensive. In all honesty even making your own won’t be that much cheaper in the long run but you will have the ability to control size shape and output of the bank. The problem is soldering on Cells is they can explode if overheated. I don’t like the idea of things exploding that close to my face. So like many of us, I buy Pre-made Packs. This is fine for small projects but I would like to branch out. In steps another Diy solution the Arduino spot welder. You can do quick tab welds and make battery banks very easy. I just got some Arduino’s a while back so this is one of my first Arduino projects. I will update you guys when it’s finished.
With that here is a video of an easier to make version. This guy is a great YouTuber and a wealth of info.
I am considering doing a daily spotlight on things like this. If you like these rate and post. If you want to see something spotlighted post it below and I’ll do my best to check your ideas out. If you have a YouTuber you think I might like, feel free to share as well.
