Some people on this forum have previously purchased A123 lithium pouch cells and used them for their PHEV projects. I know that others are considering purchasing these cells for their own PHEV projects but are unsure of how to connect the cells since they have tabs rather than regular battery post terminals. I wanted to start this thread so we could specifically talk about the connections. Hopefully some of our experienced members will chime in and possibly share the pros and cons of how they did it. I'll also see about throwing in some info I've seen posted elsewhere on the web. No need to recreate the wheel.
