My garage roof isn't worth the name and is now a high priority for a new one so I've been pondering rather than building in the wet these last few weeks. These batteries have these specs....



......and are used in some leccy cars. Is there any reason I should or shouldn't make a 13s1p battery from them for a 48v 1000w motor? I expect to need a BMS which seems a relatively straightforward piece of soldering. My current :)understanding is that they should be fine. The overall battery weight would be marginally more than a typical 18650 20ah set-up but also marginally cheaper. Would I be better sticking to the more usual 18650? If those with a better grasp can offer some edification I'll gladly soak it up.

I don't have any particular view on them. A battery is a battery and capacity is capacity. If these batteries were superior to any other, they would have cornered the market. If they were inferior, they would probably not be used.

My thoughts would be that provided there is a reliable supply of them, and appropriate charging facilities/equipment/management are available, then why not?
