Suggestions on 16340 high drain batteries

With the BLF MINI-01 group buy going on I was wondering what batteries to buy to get the most out of it?
I know it wont handle the heat for very long but that doesn’t matter it’s just for short turbo bursts 8)
When I searched I found some talk about bestinone IMR’s but their homepage doesn’t seem to work anymore?
Also found these http://www.vapingzone.com/Efest_IMR_16340_700mAh_high-drain_3_7V_LiMn_Ba...
Are there more alternatives or maybe cheaper stores to buy from?

Can't link now but bestvaping sells them for a very reasonable price especially if you order a bunch of batteries at once.

Thanks for the link scaru, seems like a good deal.
Almost as good as their deal on AW 16340 for $0 Big Smile
But how much is the shipping? It says “we will work out the shipping cost after we get your orders from our site”

Generally shipping is somewhere around 10 dollars. Obviously when buy one battery this isn't as much of a deal as when buying 10.

This seems a good place to get cells.

Keep in mind there is a $50 minimum order on the wholesale site.

As far as I can tell bestvaping has the same or very similar prices without the minimum order.

I have Yezl 16340’s and AW IMR’s for my mini-01. Both are very good high drain cells.

I measured 2.4A at the tail with the Yezl, and just over 3A with the AW IMR.

I hope to try some efest cells in the future.

Yes I have seen them but they are 550mAh not 700mAh.
Or is it the same battery inside with the real capacity printed on them now?

Hello Fonzeka,

efest imr 16340 real capacity is 700mah, we have two label, one is 550mah, another one is 700mah. But the real capacity is 700mal, you can test it at any time. Some of our customer asked we marked as 550mah. So that’s why we have too labels for this.

Made an order last week but nothing happened so far.
All these crappy similar stores and multiple labels on same battery just makes me want to order some AW’s and be done :~

Get yourself some Yezl 16340’s from Torchythebatteryboy’s eBay shop.
I measured 2.4A max on the Mini-01 with a Yezl, compared to 3A max on an AW IMR, so not that far behind, plus longer runtimes from the Yezl.

+1 on the Yezl batteries. I started using these batteries because they were suggested by MattSPL. I’m glad I listened to him Wink

Just got my first 16340… Gets very hot 45 seconds to 1 minute in, but very good for light output worthy of the 1,000 lumens advertised. Too bad it falls off after 1-3 minutes.

Hello friend,

Bestinone.net was changed to www.efestbattery.com, so you can exactly order the same itmes from efestbattery.com. Bestinone.net have the web panel problems, to avoid this problems, so we just changed to efestbattery.com. Sorry for the inconvenient caused.

Best Regards,

Jone

Your IMR 16340 700mAh V2 I just received from illumn.com are closer to 600 mAh in reality, according to Lii-500, using 0.5A discharge current. Maybe the capacity will increase slightly after several cycles, but I doubt it’ll reach 700 mAh.

But good info to know!

Yeah, I mainly posted it for others to see.

My initial readings were actually below 600 mAh.

But to be fair, I just retested them, after about 8 charge/discharge cycles, and here are the latest readings:


However, I goofed and used 0.25A discharge current this time, so it’s not exactly apples to apples comparison since my initial discharge test used 0.5A current.

As you can see, there is about a 5% difference in tested capacity between the two cells.

There is difference in weight also:
668 mAh cell: 17.2g
635 mAh cell: 17.9g

Not sure what would account for this weight difference, but there is definitely some variance from one cell to another.

Thanks for posting your results Pete! (Even being an old thread!)
I was (am?) looking at those Efest and also at these 2:

https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/AWT-16340-li-ion-battery-550mah_6...

https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Genuine-MXJO-IMR-16340-7A-battery_60385906222.html?spm=a2700.7724857.main07.11.771156070fvnnO

I’m not sure if these are good, I couldn’t find results or tests on them.
Maybe I can suggest them to HKJ for a review (if they worth it).
The MXJO and the AWT on 18350 are not bad, for what I could see (well, at least before the Aspire Big Smile ), but about these 16340… I don’t know.

BTW, recently got a Olight S1R, weights 54gr with battery! It’s not a 18350, and I’m not sure if it is heavier or lighter than OTR M3, but its “carriable” on a cap Wink

I think the Lii-500 always discharges at 500mA.
The current you can choose is the charging current iirc.

No.
When charging current is 700mA or 1000mA then it discharges at 500mA
Whan charging 250mA or 500mA then discharge is 250mA.

M3 with battery weighs 59g. This is my current “cap light”. Smile

I just wish I could squeeze an 18350 cell in it somehow. Smile
