Hi Fukuyama guys,
I purchased my first set of fuku batteries and recieved then today. I really like that you supply shrink wrap and stickers with your cells its a nice little extra. My question is what is the best technique for getting a nice smooth and even finish when putting the shrink wrap on the cells, I know I have tried this in the past and it didn't go to well so I have not done it since but would like to try it again.

Cheers

Glen

I've always used a hair dryer, do it on a table or counter top, and blow to one side of the cells and slowly let them roll across the counter top ( use a stick to keep it from rolling to fast, or off the table so you don't roast your fingers.

I do the same thing but on an old towel to keep them from rolling too fast.

I normally would put the cell in the shrink lay the cells on an "L" shape i.e. bathroom counter against the wall and just heat with a heatgun or hair dryer, go lightly over it and when you see it shrink starting to shrunk, roll it over once and do the back side. These shrink wraps are thicker and easier to shrink and is a perfect fit so you shouldn't have much problems.

Good luck and enjoy your new Fukuyama Packs!

Dan

Thanks for the help with the cell shrink wrap guys, I tried it last night and it worked perfectly. The difference i think was that the wrap i have used in the past was larger and so it didn't shrink as well, the stuff supplied with the fuku cells was a perfect fit and shrunk on easy
