Hi Craig,

I will whip up a drawing and mold details. Perhaps others can chime in once posted and we can dial in the design.

Curious what sort of voltage these cells will produce?

Thanks
Tim

Hi Tim 🙂

Thanks for this.

The Battery is getting 1.85V 3A with 10K cycles at this time. Yet we are looking to get more with bigger batteries in the future. We want to create a battery for Charging cell phones first.

Cheers,
Craig

Zinc Bromide?

Yes that is Correct Zinc Bromide Batteries. I have a way to create on a small scale and once we get set up, can mass produce, and open it up for others to Create 🙂

Craig,

Please see attached drawing. Let me know if i have interpreted this correctly.
If not, i will be happy to make the necessary changes.

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Tim, Great to get this from you. TY

1. There is no bottom, Just sides walls frames (HDPE sheets will form the top/bottom walls)
2. Corners will have a Rad. 1mm? or cutting tool dia.
3. I forgot to mention the Liquid fill hole. On 1 side of the 8cm sides, need a 2mm hole in the center or 4CM from the edge.

The Drawing can show the hole. Yet when making the mould, maybe easier to drill the hole out as to creating a Mould??

Thanks and looking forward to building 🙂
This could also be printed with  3D printer HDPE Filament.

Cheers,
Craig 🙂

Tim, we just need the 1MM Rad on the outside Corners and to looks like all we need for the design.

Great job, TY 🙂

I’m thinking that we can mould into individual uint,  or several.

Yet maybe able to press in a continue tube and cut to 1cm Wide??

Cheers,
Craig

No problem, i can make that change easily.

Is the 1mm rad critical?

The current rad is based on the tooling i use to create to mold.

I am curious how this will be used to create a battery.

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Tim,

Not critical 1mm best No.
Less chipping and ease of release from the mould.

The HPDE component is the Frame of the Battery.
Several layers of Graphfoil and Carbon Black sheets, are heat sealed to form the Sidewall.
The hole is the fill hole for  Zinc Bromide.
The hole gets sealed and then changed the battery.

Build many, create battery banks and be off-grid. Or for Emergency Power

Cheers, Craig

PS next Moulds, EV scooter/car Full 1 piece Frame, with GHDPE and Drive Wheel Hubs.

Craig,

where would the terminals be located? Each sidewall?

Interesting idea, have you created one before?

Thanks,
Tim

There are no terminals as such. It depends on the uses and configuration. The Sidewalls 9Graphfoil become the terminals. Yet we will have to run two wires to connect to equipment.

I have not created this type of battery before. I need to create the parts first. So I figure that I start with creating the Battery frame. Then I can order the materials to build the batteries.

I will make videos and post the Build 🙂

Hello All, Just seeing if there is someone that wants to continue this project. Still looking to get design and then a mould, create and them get manufactured.  It’s a great project if you are looking to build batteries for off-grid. We had a good start, yet been stopped for a few weeks now.

Cheers,
Craig

PS I have order supplies to make batteries and to make Heating walls 🙂
