 the battery is radically different: it's an e-bike battery, it's
going to be robust as hell (capable of delivering far more than what
is being asked of it), so it's simply not going to be made of layers
as thin as the samsung battery...

 ... also bear in mind that the base is wood: it would flex...

 ... but i still don't wish to take any risks, so i'll be increasing
the base height by 1mm.  it's a single parameter (i've adjusted it
before) but i still have to do a thorough review / walk-round in the
CAD.  and re-print everything.  *sigh*.
