Default sxs battery packs.

I am going to buy 12 elite cells to make two six cell side by side packs, ive never made any battery packs before but i know how to solder pretty good, good enough to be confident in making some packs, so im just wondering if anyone has any tips or suggestions, all will be welcome, and im going to buy them from cheapbatterypacks so if anyone knows any promo codes that would be cool too, thanks.

I did and thats alot of posts to search through, i made it through about 20 pages and gave up, maybe my term was too vague, i typed in side by side battery pack, and it turned up so many topics.

You'd probably want to order a new charger/discharger anyway, unless you can calculate how much time it will exactly take to charge/discharge the batteries.
