This is one of his projects.
I don't want to cause a negative association to the brand name, but from what I have read the batteries are hit and miss. There are some problems with expansion and the need to make a metal frame to keep the cells compressed, and capacities that do not meet the claimed numbers.

Again, I do not have any first hand experience, but I would like to see real test data.
