Answered: repairing battery leads


My team recently had a battery lead pull out of the case on the battery pack and we were wondering if it would be legal to pull the front of the case off and re-solder the lead to the cell. R15-a states that we may make external repairs to wires, but we were not sure if this would be considered external.


No, this would not be legal. This is not an external modification to the wires.
