Numerous places on this forum I see recommendations and links to a guide of the risks, rewards and techniques of soldering leads to lithium 18650s in a pinch. These links are all dead.

Anyone know a valid link or have a copy saved?

Thanks

Ok -- going to answer my own question. I dug around on his site and found he apparently migrated to WordPress and this changed all the addresses to the old archives.

Here is the new link to the guide.
