3400mAh Dark Matter 18650 protected batteries...

We’ve got them and they’re enroute. Genuine Panasonic NCR18650B. Pricing is to be determined but I’m hazarding a guess ~$20 CAD. That’s insane because that’s just a few bucks more than the 3100mAh — though that 3100mAh has better discharge curve if initial test on sample batt is right.

ETA is last week of September shipped from Canada. Now this is exciting Smile

EDIT:

You asked, we delivered (ok, pre-ordering)!

This is UNPRECEDENTED pricing… minimum order quantity of 2 but we are going to blow the doors off the others that choose to take advantage of the situation and push prices sky high.

Who’s with me? Spread the word.

By the way, it can be had as low as $13.99 with quantity pricing! Who’s crazy now?

According to HKJ’s tests the 3400mAh has a better discharge curve at every current level, the 3400 looks to be the superior cell on every way.

At our standard 1.5A test rate, the 3400 voltage sagged more after about the 2400mAh mark down to 2.75v cutoff (not using a CV discharge). Keep in mind that companies providing testing samples usually pick the creme of the crop whereas ours were purchased in a “pack of 10”. Of course what comes out of our bricks later this month will tell! We put all our batteries through the wringer and label them accordingly prior to sale (no one else does this). It’ll be interesting to see the consistency, if any.

Sounds interesting. Keep your fellow Canucks posted. Maybe an initial special offer for Canadian BLF members when they are available(hint hint). Wink

Are these cells flattops or buttontops? If they are buttontops, are they large or small diameter buttons?

The question is how many less charges will you get vs the 3100mah or say a 2600mah battery. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.

On “estimate shipping” it was ~$12 to ship to North Carolina.

Can you tell me the actual size of the batteries (length & width in mm)?

That was what I got as well. Seems like a lot for shipping to the states.

I can attest that anytime you send something from Canada over the border you are double digits for the cheapest rate..no matter the size of the package..just my experiences..
