I'm still a bit new to these forums, and definitely new to working with electronics, so forgive me if I'm a bit naive or my calculations are off! I've been looking into various sources for battery power, as I feel that EV lithium batteries are terribly expensive.
So, on a wild idea, I started looking at 2005 last-gen laptop batteries. Like....
This one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...734Q5BMTKC7DSN
Just a generic Lithium-Ion 9 cell pack for a laptop. Say you were to disassemble this pack to get access to the 11.10v, 7.2Ah pack inside of it.
And say you bought 200 of them. (4400 USD, approx)
Compose a 'superpack' using 28 Li-Ion laptop battery packs in parallel for 201.6Ah, 11.10v.
Put 7 of those 'superpacks' in series for a final pack spec of 201.6Ah, 77.7v.
Would this work? And if so, how does it compare to buying 3.2vCALB batteries at 200Ah?
If this works, are there any other sources for lithium batteries that people can think of?
