I can only run two of those cells in series ever, rest need to be in parallel.
I'd need massive massive relay's to do switching as well, and having a switch is pointless, all battery's equally drained at the same rate. Only thing was the UPS took a full 3 days to fully charge them from dead.
I may get more battery's, those are the battery's that are used to backup phone line's in Canada. After 5 years they get scrapped, and they are for the main part still in great condition. 200 were thrown out a few months ago, when the next batch comes may pickup another 4 or so.
158 watts while idle,
190 watts using 50% CPU,
220 watts while using 100% CPU,
253 watts peak while booting
450 is fine
