....and at least I got the first part right: order your cells with tabs!!
I just need to know the answer to what is probably a freaking dumb question. As you know, the tabs will create some space in between the cells. I'm soldering a straight stick of 4 to jam into a Maglite.
Should I make the tabs form a "S" shape or a "W" shape when I put them together?
The question being, when I push the cells together, the tabs will flatten out and perhaps stick out beyond the cell diameter.
Or have I gotten it all wrong?
Any other tips are most welcome. Thanks
