The 50 count case is this one for $10.94 + shipping (shipping is crazy low, these are made in Ohio!) and the 25 count box is this one , at an unbelievable $4.28!!. Perfect size for 18650’s, I’ve got all the way down to 14500’s in mine.

What a cool idea! thanks for sharing. I am going to order a few of those myself.

I wouldn't buy the 2-cell cases on their own, but gladly pay a little extra to have them included. In other words, not getting the cases wouldn't be worth saving only $0.40.

I really dig getting toys in 3 days vs 3 weeks, looking forward to shopping on your website. The boxes sold me on the battery purchase, practically eliminates buyer/seller grief over damage.

The webstore is up in running. It’s super ugly. It’s missing tons of descriptions. It is almost entirely devoid of pictures. These negative aspects will change in the near future, but what won’t change is my commitment to keep costs as low as possible! To help ease the blow of having to use the haphazard site, I am offering a 2% discount code “1ST2TRY” which is valid until 11/17/13 at 11:00 PM PST.

I’ll admit that the site is currently lacking finesse, but I’ve been burning the midnight oil trying to find the time to get it to the point of functionality. I will be working throughout the weekend and next week to complete product listings, add photos, and squash bugs. Speaking of bugs, if you have any major problems with the site, please PM me.

Efest IMR 10440, 16340, & 18350 are now available! Check them out at the store!

Looks great. I like the fact that you included unprotected/protected in the mini description; that way I don’t have to search to find a hint of whether or not it is protected. Smile

The beta looks better than most chinese vendors. Beer

Also I’d love to see Efest 14500 IMR in that list if at all possible. I’d definitely grab a few.

Your site looks fine.
I’m sure you will make many of improvements in a short amount of time.

Don’t kill yourself trying to make the site perfect the first weekend

Batteries I ordered Tuesday arrived today!!!!!!!!
I could have picked them up at 7:30 this morning if I needed them.

Thanks

Order placed on the site for 10 cells in variety and 3 QLites. Looked into the Efest IMR 10440, 16340, and 18350 - pretty good from HKJ's reviews, so had to get some Smile, and the SAM 20R's are a no-brainer...

Hey Tom, the Efest IMR10440 is the 20R of 10440 cells, that tiny little cell can pull 3A…only one I’ve found that can. Wink I have 7 of em, and 2 on the way. Smile

Whoa, I didn't notice the MT-G2 version of the Qlite driver.  Why is this making me laugh like an evil villain? 

The low mode should be lower.

The MT-G2 in my C12 has become my favorite all around flashlight. I use it almost every day!

This cell will be available on Tuesday! It looks like it’s an awesome cell for XM-L2 lights, especially if you have 4.35v charger. They have a nice discharge curve, very little voltage sag.

Prices – Cases Included
1 – $6.85
2 or more $6.65
4 or more $6.55
6 or more $6.45
8 or more $6.35

A few charts from HKJ comparing it to some other popular choices:
20R vs D1 at 3A

20R vs D1 at 5A

NCR18650B vs D1 at 3A

NCR18650B vs D1 at 5A

Got my set of 4 of the 20R batteries today. They came in individual sleeves, inside two plastic 18650 cases, inside a padded envelope. They look great. They all came out of the package at 3.56V. Voltage was the same for all four. I am looking forward to using them in some high drain applications.

Thanks to RMM for a fast response, good packaging and a good product at a great price.

Hi, thanks for supplying these cells.

I’m having a problem in the checkout “Warning: No Shipping options are available. Please contact us for assistance!”

Due to my non US location?

Assistance appreciated Smile

Will your LG ICR18650D1 come PINK?   that's the only color I've seen them in. 

Is there a higher capacity 10440 than the 340mAh Efest?   not fake, overrated numbers

The Efest is the best there is in 10440s.
Just be sure to charge at ~250mA or less, otherwise you could reduce its capacity.

You mean 250mA or less?

According to:

HKJ Test

The stated 350mAh capacity on the label seems about right if they were discharged down to 2.5V even at a discharge current of 1A-1.5A so that would make a 0.5C charge of 175mA conservative enough.

I just use 100mA, slow but gentle Wink

Less is always good.
250mA is ~0.8C going by HJK’s measured capacity of 308mAh. ~ means “about”.
Manufacturers often recommend charging at 0.8C or less.

Edited to add ‘or less’ to my other post. :bigsmile:

Hi RMM, Are the Evva 18650’ batteries as good as the KeepPower Batteries? Have you done a test on these cells or are there any reviews for these batteries?

While there haven’t been any formal technical comparisons done yet, I believe that they are. They use the same quality base cells, the quality of the wrappers is the same, they both use the same Seiko protection IC, and they both use the same MOSFETs (although the Evva actually has one more MOSFET on the NCR18650B model).

Check out this thread for a visual comparison.
