How many volts??? Li-Ion cells are 3.7v each, so multiply by 4 = 16.4v when fully charged. Good luck with that!

This might be dangerous.

You don't want these batteries to short-out. Be careful in the open. It might start to rain. Be careful indoors. Someone with a glass of beer in is hand might trip and spill his beer over your power contraption.

Hahaha...do you see a burned dslr in the pic?

Thanks for the caution. I'm gonna use pvc heat shrink for protection.

It might be worth explaining your build when you post photos because others might not be as intelligent as you, and just think that you have 4 x 3.7v batteries stuck together.

Well...sorry for that, I'm not good at English.
I'll try, but based on questions :D
Thanks anyway...

No problem, it's just that some see a photo and copy it without asking questions, believing what they see to be correct.

Your English is better than my Indonesian :)
