    Found the answer to my own question.The final discharging voltage with is 2.5 V (also called as Minimum Voltage) ;-) Thanks anywhy

    send you a private message. Yes, will do it for a heating vest and heating socksBTW: Here are some pictures showing my heating vest in action.

    And? To with percentage to you unload your battery pack? I read this "Never completely discharge li-ion battery ( below 2.5V under load )". What about you?Nominal Voltage: 3.6 VCharging Voltage: 4.2 VMinimum Voltage: 2.5 VWhat about your experiences with this batteries? I mean, having an actuall working range between 3.6V and max 2.5V is not much, or?

    Hi Shenzhen,I finally managed to build my own heating vest with your perfect support :-) Love the heating vest - thanks for your brilliant instructions.One last question: To with percentage do you unload your bpack? I bought a battery voltage tester (here) to monitor my batteries.Again, thanks a lot.cheers-b

    Hi Shenzhen,the connection was the issue. I connected the tape in parallel with just 55cm in between which was to much for the Remote Control. I tried it first with a distance of 1m (as you did) and it worked perfect but it got colder and colder as closer it get to my neck. So, I decided to short the tape/connection to just 55cm (instead of 1m) and that burned my Remote Control (max power output: 5A),I ordered 5 new and now am trying to find the optimal distance for a 3,50 m long (15mm) tape. Can you recommend a optimal distance for me? Thanks in advanced-b

    DIY carbon tape heated vest

    Hi,I build a battery back based on 12 6x18650 connected in parallel and serial to get 13.600 mAh and 14,8V and I'm using only ~4m carbon tap (15 mm).Now, my first test (only a beta test to get a feeling of (a) continues heat, (b) last long, (c) get family with what I'm doing) was a kind of OK but I burned the 12V RF Wireless Remote Switch probably because of peak output current 12A. Q: Do you have any idea how I can still use my BPack but with a different switch or can/should I sill use the recommended 12V RF Wireless Remote Switch? Actually, any switch to control the heat is welcome. Thanks in advanced-b
