I have put together a 12.8V, 82Ah LiFePO4 pack (4S15P 32650s) as a drop in replacement for a common 12V lead acid and am currently working on a 16.4V, 65Ah LiMn (2x Nissan Leaf modules) smart battery pack.

BTW, look up Rinoa Super-Genius if you want to know how to test and reuse discarded 18650s. She has done a lot with 18650s, from building packs for hybrid bicycles to even cutting open bad cells (don't try that unless you really know what you're doing) in order to study them. If nothing else, watch her show off her strength lifting one end of a Nissan Leaf battery pack in preparation for extracting the modules.
To my surprise, shortly after Naomi Wu gave me a bit of fame for making good use of solar power, Allie Moore got really jealous of her...
