This is my first attempt at creating a home made panel. Issues tonight was I was using a 30 watt soldiering iron that couldn’t keep the temp up and it make a bunch of cold soldiering joints. Also the flex am using is leaving a brown residue on the cells. I tried to clean them like Mark said but they look horrid. A voltage check of the cell using indoor lighting was .487 VDC. So I guess it will work ok, not great. Am thinking the current may not be what it should be 8 amps.

I have soldiered multi-layer boards, being to every high level solider class there is and this is looking like someone that hasn’t ever done anything before. Well, am learning I guess and am going through the beginners pain on this type of soldiering. So far I think I have broke about 12 cells.

So not happy but I guess you have to make mistakes and learn from them. Hence the reason for all of this.
