i wonder if JB weld, or some other type of metalic adhesive would work.

I would just use Solder.

Default solder

any adhesive would create a lot more resistance than metal solder and resistance is the enemy.

There are high conductivity adhesives on the public market, but they have too high a resistance for use building battery packs.

There are a few industrial adhesives that almost fit the bill, made by 3M and Loctite on a custom mixed-to-order basis, but the binders used to keep the silver and carbon in the material are very toxic until cured, and require some hefty protection on the part of the person applying them, as wella s relatively high heat to initiate the cure (~150C for 1 minute), which is still in the danger zone for battery packs. They're also only available to OEM companies, since last time I ordered any, the minimum quantity was 10 liters at about US$5/cc (That's fifty thousand dollars to those of you who are math impaired).

Default Don't try this at home !

Gentleman;

Take an old Lamp Cord and, seperate the wires by about 12", then strip 1/2" of the insulation off each end.

Using some CA, glue one end of the bare wire between the Thumb and Forfinger of each Hand.

With the help of a 3rd Hand, plug this into an electrical outlet. If you get Shocked, then the CA should work for the Battery Packs too.

***NOTE: This is ONLY a Joke. DO NOT try this at home !****

GREAT!!!

Now that I have my new JoebobZX9Pro1/2matched Batteries, I've been beating the pants off just about everyone.

So don't count your Pennies before their Hatched.
