Anyway, current Tesla battery has 10A 18650s.
If you replace them with 5A (cheap laptop ones, that don't fly away, if damaged), you will have half the power, so 170-ish kW (220 hp) to motor, which is still mad. That is power comparable to subway train, which has 4x72 kW (288 kW) motors (type Eж-3 in Moscow subway), which accelerate 33 metric ton car. And Tesla is shy 2 metric tons.
Arrangement of battery doesn't matter.
""Laptop"" batteries accept 1C charging, which will charge it to 80-ish percents within hour, and around 2.5 hour to 100%, due to CV.
At 4.2V didn't explode, unlike Tesla cells, which do explode even at low charge.
