"Finally had time to put these together. I built a small lithium battery pack for my router so I can have it on 24/7 even when the power is out. I added a BMS and throughly tested each cell to make sure they meet the standard requirements."

In an updated post, he said the battery he built was helping him. He said he was able to use it when the public power supply went off.

His words:

"Nepa in their usual fashion took the light around 3 am when it started raining. I hooked up my power bank to the router and it has been running since. It's been over 7 hours and it's still going. I would like to see how long it can last."
