Do you know the amperage rating for the contacts? I'd like to adapt a 4 cell version but am a bit concerned with pulling 26A through spring terminals.

I don't, but I'm sure the contacts can handle it. I thought "spring" contacts were the ones with an actual spring... these are a solid metal.
The heat that would be generated by drawing more amps than the contacts could handle would melt the sled and the solder long before the contacts fail.

Thanks, and as I hit send I also realized, I'm talking about series so only voltage goes up so I should remain within the manufacturer's spec.
