lap top salvage 18650's

I just pulled apart a dead laptop battery. Had six samsung pink/purple coloured ICR19650-26C  SDI 935   batteries. Strange thing is all measured 3.88 V. I thought I would find a dead one or two.

Does any one know the mah of these batteries?. I dont have a decent charger to test them on. Dell Laptop is about less than 2 years old.

 

They are supposed to be 2600 mah.

I've never used them but Samsung do make a 2600mAh 18650, so I imagine that's the real capacity.

I was expecting a much lower capacity  so I am quite happy with them. I've charged two up already with no problems so hopefully they will hold their charge. It was my first attempt at a salvage so I was a bit scared and I did get a few sparks when doing it.

I have salvaged the 18650´s from 2 laptop batteries and have never had any problems with

any of them. Use them eveyday in my lights. Use a Trustfire charger and a Ansmann tester.

Cheap quality is good - Expensive crap isn´t

I am a bit concerned about using 3 of them in a 3d maglight. I've heard that they can explode if all batteries dont have equal voltage.
