I’m very interested in this. Do you know of any kind of 3D print or howto guide on the best way to just get the battery mount and conductors tapped securely? I’ve 3D printed some Ryobi 18V adapters and they are great for fairly low amperage application. Looking at EGO to up the game on the projects.

I just use battery bays I find on ebay. I haven't needed to have one made. This is the only way I would connect because of the high amount of energy coming from these batteries.

If your ebike is 60vdc then it would just plug in and work. Just find a battery bay from an ego tool.
You can connect as many together as you want if you use a schottky diodes (barrier rectifier)

You need to isolate the batteries from each other or they will equalize which is a bad thing. Very bad thing. It basically will charge a lower voltage battery at a unregulated rate.
