How would it be to use lets say o-ring or whatever those rings are called which are used to keep air / water connections tight?

No I just typed it a bit fuzzy :P, im making 2 different battery packs
One pack which will be 7,4v 240mAh.
The other pack will be 7,4v 340 mAh.

I've seen the blue lipo pack people use and wanted to heatshrink mine aswell to get it nice and tidy and to make it easier to place them in the robot.
