    18650 crimp ends

    Have 18650 manufacturers ever been approached about including crimps on each end of the cells? Since wire-bonded packs rely upon glue or potting to join the cells mechanically, it seems like crimping wires across cell ends would be even more economical than ultrasonic wire bonding. There would need to be a huge quantity of sales expected for the manufacturers to consider this, but in aggregate the eBike community could provide that quantity. It would also bring down the price of packs (by reducing assembly costs), introduce economy of scale, and thereby increase eBike adoption. Surely somebody knows why this hasn't already been tried?
