I just built 4 packs of gp3300s this afternoon. Our cells come with a shrink over the label. If your cells dont I recommend doing so. I take my dremel on low and lightly scuff the ends. I lightly tin all my bars and cell ends. Then I slap them in my dean jig. Be sure to check that your polarity is correct and that you are building them the direction you need for the cars you run. I have a digital esd weller iron that get very hot with a medium size tip. I make sure to press down on the bars to squeeze any solder out and get a good joint. With the pack still in the jig I drop a bit of CA between the cells. For bars I prefer the gold orion bars.

Well as someone stated above. They said use the deans solder. Well deans has lead in it. So you dont want to inhale that or any other solder. But if it came down to inhaling solder. I would not want to get even the slightest wiff of the deans.

Lead can do some serious damage to your body. Stay away or wear a mask or ventilator or do it outside if possible, with a fan blowing things in the opposite direction.

Its not a joke, dont breathe anything like this. It wont put anything anywhere except for retardation into your brain.
