High Discharge Rate Batteries 18650

Batitude, if your around I especially would like your commentary.

As some of you are aware, some of the newer vv,watt regulated mods have specific requirements for use. Like my new Aster recommends a battery with a continuous discharge rate over 25A. The problem is the obvious, there just aren't many batterys that have that high of a continuous discharge rate.

I just bought two VTC 6 Sony's from illumination supply. They talk about 80C Cut rate, dont even know what that means. Different…

High Discharge Rate Batteries 18650

Charging issue

When my batteries are fully charged, they read out about 4.22V. They're relatively new Fogstar batteries, 3.7V 3500mah, 10-20A.
However, when I take them off the charger and test them instantly, they read out at 4.26V.

I've been reading that if a charger is charging over 4.2V, that the charger is faulty and should not be used. This is relatively new (about 2 months old), and admittedly cheap equipment.

I never knew the charge before because I only now got a V meter in my spanking new Coil…

iJoy 40A 4200mAh 26650 Bench Test Results…overrated but a great 30A battery!

These cells were purchased for the purposes of testing by me. To prevent any confusion with the ego-type "batteries", I use the term "cell" here to refer to a single 18350, 18650, 26650, etc.

While the test results are hard data, the conclusions and recommendations I make based on these tests are only my personal opinion based on my criteria for setting a rating. Carefully research any cell you are considering using before purchasing.

Testing cells at their limits is dangerous and should…

Battery discharge curve analysis

Hi! [​IMG]
Fellows, I'm in the process of restoring an old Ni-CD drill/screwdriver battery pack.

[​IMG]

Jokes aside [​IMG] , the batteries are to be replaced by, :wub: you know, a marriage of LiitoKala 26650-50A cells.
Well, since there are no known 20A discharge curves for these cells (besides the stuff available at…

I’ve made an error

i have lots of different batteries and generally when the are all flat except 1 or 2, I will charge them all pretty much on the same day (I think that's okay).

But I have a couple of married sets which I'm not keen on but don't want to seperate just in case. I put one pair into charge today and the batt labelled *1 is at 3.58, the battery labelled *2 is at 3.82
I don't remember but have obviously made a mistake, not swapped them over and one has discharged considerably more than the other….
