Hello, y'all! I've got a few thousand 18650 cells all in 10 packs. They're hooked up to a charge controller of some kind but can easily be removed. These were backup batteries for machines that were rarely discharged, so they're in pretty decent shape from the ones I've tested. Attached is a photo of the battery packs. Most all of them have 3.7V 2200mAh cells. If you buy in lots of 250 batteries, shipping is only $15 through a USPS medium box. I could probably put more in a large box if interested.

That's a hell of a bargain if they're not completely shot. It's even tempting me and I'm almost compulsively cheap.

Not many here are building EVs out of 18650s, but, if you head over to the Endless Sphere forums, these'll be gone in a day I bet.

That's exactly why I acquired them lol. That and I was going to experiment with a go kart frame I kept eyeballing, but my money and time got occupied elsewhere. There's probably a few dead cells here and there but the ones I tested at random worked.

I'll give there a try as well. Thanks for the advice!

How much to send 250 batteries, including postage to Sydney Australia.
Thanks

I didn't exactly hunt for the cheapest postage possible, but PirateShip quoted me $171USD for shipping and the batteries themselves would cost $150, so $321 total. Of course, you're welcome to find cheaper postage elsewhere. The ship from zip is 35209, AL, USA
