Batteries work better at this time, caps are rare and expensive devices that are very good at doing things not needed for storage systems typically.********************************************************************************List of parts used to make this project: Laptop Batteries http://j35.us/Ebay-Laptop-Battery-Lot18650 Holders http://j35.us/18650-spacer-clipsCopper buss bars http://j35.us/1NGpBo4Cell Fuse wire http://j35.us/1k-Ohm-resistorTesla Glass No longer availableRelated Products:JuiceBox 40A Plug-in Electric http://j35.us/amazon-juicebox-40a********************************************************************************Music by :Andy Immerman - Forecast http://j35.us/amazon-andy-immerman-fo...http://j35.us/TokyoOrbitalMotorway-Vo...http://j35.us/GYVUS-SolisOccasum********************************************************************************Need Lithium Batteries to build your own DIY Powerwall?Cells For Smaller projects - http://j35.us/SmallerBatteriesLarge Automotive cells - http://j35.us/150perKwModsBuy BMS system here - http://j35.us/Batrium********************************************************************************Instagram: http://j35.us/insta-jag35Twitter: http://j35.us/twitter-jag35 Facebook: http://facebook.com/jag35media Beme: http://j35.us/beme-jag35 ********************************************************************************If you would like support our project by donating, you can use this link: http://j35.us/helpwithcash or by using patreon https://www.patreon.com/jehu ********************************************************************************Also please support our sponsors http://j35.us/jag35-2016 http://gabvwkey.comhttp://j35.us/indiespot-2016http://evwest.com http://www.isee360.com http://www.rode.com/products********************************************************************************

    Holy shit.... someone on YouTube doing a DIY that actually researched and knows what he is taking about. That's refreshing!! I'm an industrial electrician and constantly work with 480 and 208 three phase power. This guy is spot on with voltages and Watt hours etc. Good job!!

    TR Custom Tech soooo true... this is a smart guy...

    He used Li-ion batteries on a wooden box. Worst possible idea anyone could ever have. It's nearly Impossible to put out a Li-ion fire. If something goes wrong he can say goodbye to his house.He also didn't have a BMS system.

    You might consider a fireproof enclosure for that contraption... you know, instead of wood.

  • giannisparty 1 months ago

    What about venting for Hydrogen being released via the batteries or is that not possible through lithium ion??Venting to cool the batteries for mounting outside perhaps but then you have elements of moisture to consider tooAlso i was thinking maybe an enclosure created from aluminium or carbon fibre lined with a rubber of some sorts?!?!Amazing idea though really is the future for off grid survival 😎👍

    What if you make it watertight and submerge it in a hopefully nonflammable mineral oil? No access to oxygen and can provide cooling if needed.

    if you have to explain what's the difference between AC and DC... you should also say "IF YOU DON'T KNOW...DON'T EVEN TRY IT!" LOL

  • Bandit Leader 10 months ago

    Nah ac and dc are obviously interchangeable

    Cool project, I always love DIY and people who share the knowledge. To everybody else on here, right or wrong, we should be thankful for people who take the time to do a good video and share their knowledge, even if it is wrong or we don't agree with it fully. You can either learn good things, bad things and takeway (if you choose) something from things like this.Having said that, I do disagree with a few things. First the price, you only mention the batteries, wood and glass as cost on your BOM. How...

    Michael Bedford can a Tesla powerwall be juiced with wind turbines?

  • Cekpi7 3 years ago

    100$ for glass...you could buy more cells

  • FACT BASED 9 months ago

    Cekpi7 it was $100.00 spent on theater. Notice he covered the Tesla with his sticker after? What a statement!! Great way the end the video.

  • Frank Navarrete, M.D. 10 months ago

    300 dollar unit, 100 of which were just for the cover! Thats ridiculous. Just leave the glass cover with no art on it. You can save at least 75 dollars.

    You are amazing. Thank you for taking the time to make this video, I enjoyed it immensely.

    Dude, you have an amazing channel.

  • Roelof Kingma 2 years ago

    Hi there,You forgot to mention the costs of a control unit and an inverter, which - of course - are included in the Tesla Unit.Regards from The Netherlands,Roelof Kingma

    Great job. If you look around you can even buy them new for a bargain and skip the tedious work of taking the laptop batteries apart. But what about balancing them? BMS? Several balance chargers?

  • Vishvas Handa 3 years ago

    Wood to encase batteries, I don't think its a good idea. and that too without any ventilation or heat sink that's just dangerous!
