Here's a picture (sorry it's fuzzy) of the cell before and after soldering and shrink wrapping. I don't know how durable the
+/- tabs are. Also, you don't want to risk them touching each other. So, I soldered leads on, and put heat shrink on the positive lead. Then, I folded them back on the top of the cell with the wires going out the other end and encased it in AirDyn's shrink tubing. It seems a lot more durable this way.

These cells are going to going to find their way into a lot of my planes.
