A few months ago, my Friends, Dell laptop battery did not work properly.Whenever he unplug it from main AC supply,the laptop switched off immediately.After few days of frustration, he replaced the battery and gave me dead one for tinkering.i was curious what I would find inside it.Then I go through several blogs and forum to get some ideas.I got a lot of things.
I used this battery to make a decent power bank.It really works fine for me.I thought I’d share the info with all.So that anyone reuses it without throwing it into the dustbin.
In this tutorial, I will show you, how to harvest the 18650 battery from any of the old laptop battery pack you might have.
