Hello, I'm trying to learn about LiPo battery pack safety and was wondering if anyone could head me in the direction of some good sources of information. In particular I'm trying to learn enough to safely re-build and extend a laptop's 6-cell (3S2P) pack, but hopefully to extend it to a higher number of cells (eg 3S8P) as the extended run time (8+ hours) away from mains power would be particularly convenient for me and, as I understand it, the increased pack parallelism would be easier on the cells and extend their life-time somewhat. Cheers. edit: If possible I'd like to solder the new cells into the existing battery pack circuitry. Also, what about typical store stocked fireproof blankets?
