    No HV gloves? Oookaayyy?
    Hope he doesn't come across a battery with problems.

    Like this one I opened the other day.
    Previous joker working on it did not replace the battery terminal covers. Leaving them very susceptible to shorting to the case.

    AND STOP CALLING THEM "CELLS"!!!
    They are called Modules!

    There are 6 cells in a module.
    There are 28 modules in a battery pack.

    When you charge up a module, you are actually charging 6 cells. There is not a practical way to access or charge up a single cell.

    At 3:40, those are copper Buss Bars. Not "leads".

    Oh wait.... Not at 5:17 you are not calling them cells anymore... Now you call them batteries. Ok. But then after that you call them cells again. No wonder folks get so confused.

    But easy for me to complain, right? At least the guy was willing to put himself out there.

    Jocheck, feel free to call me if you need some help.

    Again, it's easy for me to armchair quarterback it, right?

    At least your video is engaging, has good music that isn't distracting and isn't too dangerous for folks.

    And you definitely beat anything I could ever put together on my own. Congrats on giving it a whirl.

    I'm not good with constructive criticism, just that you shouldn't put out a video that may harm others if they try what you're doing. People can get electrocuted doing what you're doing on that video. Not sure of the liability you're putting yourself in creating this video for people to follow.
