Started thinking of some kind of solution for monitoring cell temperature on all the cells instead of just a few.
Found the cheap digital 1-wire sensor (that need two or three wires) DS18B20.
DS18B20 seems to be the cheapest digital sensors on Ebay, about $1 each, and enables really simple wiring. Maybe this is not even necessary because of the lower charge-current I plan to use form the IMAX-chargers ( http://visforvoltage.org/forum/12347-use-imax-b8-rc-chargers-instead-built-one-possible ) and the cell-monitoring “activity” soon to be posted. Still it would be a nerdy-fun to log temperatures on all 102 cells.
Looks like a laptop with digitemp would be able to read all 102 sensors.
Serial / USB-converter:
Ebay search “CP2102”
To automate temp-logging in an efficient low cost way maybe a tiny NAS-server could be used. (Search Ebay: “652 nas”).
Temp connections to one port, and a USB-flash-drive to collect data in the remaining port.
This might be the optimal solution since all the logic is already built in to the Snake-OS Linux. So it will require nothing extra to talk to a network or write to a USB-thumb-drive, or dump data to a laptop etc.
Initiative to read two ANALOGUE (not DS18B20) sensors:
Or maybe use a Arduino solution.
Search Ebay “2004 LCD Display USB”. And for the CP2102.
