I was in need of 18650s recently, and there was a great price on these Liitokala 30q cells at Aliexpress. I like 30q cells, and I like good prices, so I bought 8 of these cells. There was a bunch of discussion on BLF and places regarding whether these cells are "real" or not. Read on to find out!
LiionWholesale sent a couple of their new cells for some testing. This is the new Samsung 50e, a 21700 li-ion cell. It's rated for 10A continuous discharge. Read on for performance graphs!
I have in for review a couple of 20700 cells. I asked for these because I expect that in the near future, more flashlights will begin to accept this size, and I want to be prepared! Also I just like testing cells. This is the Imren 3200mAh 25A/40A Flat Top 20700 Cell.
Illumn recently released a low cost protected 18650 - an LG MJ1 no less! I asked for a set for testing, and Illumn agreed. So here's my second cell testing!
LiIonWholesale have sent over a few more cells for testing. I'm hoping to get something regular going, and I hope this post will motivate that to happen - it's my first pass at an actual thorough cell test!! This is the Protected LG MJ1 3500mAh 10A 18650 Button Top cell!
I had seen this charger randomly around the internet and it looks so fancy. I like fancy stuff. It also looks like a very capable charger. Here's my review of it. I'll say up front (and this might be the best place, too) that this charger is is advanced enough that my typical charger-tester setup. What I mean by that is the resistance in my usual setup got sensed by the charger and prevented higher current charging.
