I agree but at what SOC? I have mine lightly compressed with a full SOC. When I discharge the cells the frame (plywood and threaded rods) is loose. Not concerned and not going to get into the weeds here. People using cells in mobile environments need to take this into consideration.I feel that it is most effective to simply tighten the frame so the cells are firm to each other.
I will add too much compression can reduce cycle life according to EVE. I have said many times the cells will most likely age before capacity reaches 80% due to cycling. IMO, keeping the cells between the knees is the best and easiest way to increase cycle life.
