If you are talking about side by side configuration, strapping tape works best. Electrical tape is too stretchy...

Deafinatly Shoe Goo when you build the pack and if possible use some heat shrink around the pack. If you need to ballance the pack just sut out the ends for access to terminals for discharge and ballance.

I'm not building a pack. One of my stick packs kinda came apart a bit, but the electrical connections are ok...

In that case, just wrap it with electrical tape. That should insulate it and keep out the elements just fine.

I'd put a bead of shoe-goo between the cells than came apart and then reinforce th epac with strapping tape. New heat shrink would be next. Better than new....
