Default Stick pack Building

All -

What is the best way to build stick packs? I searched the mini thread and there was a good post that referenced copper strips. However, I don't think I'll be able to acquire these in time for the Novak 08 race. What about the Trinity stick pack building kit?

Are there any better ways to connect the cells? K&S metal?

Thanks
Khal

K&S thin brass strip works fine, just cut it into one inch pieces, put the cells next to each other, solder and bend. Use a little flux on the strips to get a good colder connection. No need for a shotgun tube or end caps, just shrink wrap the whole dealio and you're good.

Trinity stuff is OK but the strips are thin and kinda flimsy & really require that you use the shotgun tube which can get in the way of the Mini innards if that's the direction you're heading.

solder them end to end. I did it for years for the Tam guys. I have a parallel 80 watt iron that did the trick nicely. No bars needed!
