Need funding for DIY Rechargeable Batteries Bootstrap Prototyping

Steven Reubenstone As Robert Lancer had mentioned here, I’m thinking of turning this project into a business venture.

To prototype the product, I need funding to buy a few consumables.

Sl. No. Part Quantity Cost ($)
1 3S 11.1V 25A 18650 Li-ion BMS 1 6
2 JST-XH cable 2 2
3 JST cable 2 2
4 18650 cell holder 1 1.5
5 TP4056 Li-ion cell charger 1 5
6 Li-ion cell tester 1 4
7 130 mm diameter 2:1 heat shrink tubing 1 m 2.5
Total = 20.5

Some of the items come in multiple quantities, but they are sold as listed because of shipping convenience. I’ve chosen the cost-effective options wherever applicable.

The components listed above are for a bootstrap version of the business/manufacturing process of recycling used laptop batteries into battery packs for DIY projects. The costlier items like battery spot welder and soldering station aren’t included.
