Battery Pack Configurations

Custom battery pack configurations are how the individual battery cells are connected together to create a complete battery pack assembly. There are many different battery pack configurations that need to be considered when designing a battery pack for your end product.

Below you will find some standard battery pack configurations.

This is a stack of cells end to end.

End to End Battery Pack Configuration

These are usually constructed by standing two cells side-by-side, and welding a nickel strip across the terminals. The cells are bent end to end by bending the nickel strip in a "U" shape. Allow a thickness increase of ½ to 1 mm per junction for this.
