I think you mean V instead of mAh. Wink

Der…my bad.

Corrected.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I’m new to the site, but I have a bunch of these Philips packs (M4605A) out of medical equipment. They get replaced every 2-3 years regardless of use. They contain 9 CGR18650CG (MH12210) each and were exceptionally easy to pull compared to the drill packs I’ve done. Cadex charger primed the cells and all of them reached at least 90% of the rated capacity. As back up batteries they probably haven’t been cycled at all and arrive at full charge to be recycled.

I also had 2 of them (another 7 had a friend)
Philips actually have a recall running due to capacity loss before 3 years change cycle!
we measured them between 950 and 1200 mAh …

into the bin!

I noticed in your album link that you are “jump starting” cells that are sitting at voltages too low to charge with your i4.

While that may work to get them to charge, these are NOT like Ni-MH or NiCads and this is NOT a good idea. All that energy that those over discharged cells accept could suddenly and catastrophically be released in a very short time (fire). At the very least, I am sure you have already noticed that those “jump started” cells have a high self discharge rate. That alone make them of no use, and if they self discharge in a short period of time you have a problem. You should safely discharge those cells and recycle them ASAP.
Besides, you now have many cells and can “afford” to be selective on which ones you keep. As a rule of thumb, any cell discharged to below around 2.5V is irreversibly damaged and should be recycled.

Will take that into account; I've had SOME luck with quality cells, but I don't want to push it.

I opened my 1st laptop battery pack last week, was from my 6yr old abused Dell Inspiron 6400, the battery failed to hold more than 2mins charge around 4yrs ago and has been used from the mains daily with battery attached for last 4yrs.

Inside were 6 x pink samsung ICR18560-26C, all voltages were 3.4v-3.8v, charged them to just under 4.20v and 5 days later they are all around 4.10-4.15v.

Sorry but I forgot to note down the exact battery part before I trashed the plastic casing, I do have some packs coming my way though so will record the details for the thread.

I've ordered 10 of those & will update when they arrive, relisted here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141355585144

That's the same seller that had another batch of different ones a while back, can't remember if they were the Panasonic 2900s or Samsung 28As...

The white ones were Samsung -28A cells.

Also, a Dell PT434 battery comes apart fairly easily. Had one for my ‘gaming’ [it will run WoT on low graphics, and RCT3 @ max cleanly] laptop that wouldn’t hold a charge, popped it apart and the six 2550mA USGR’s inside tested between 3.7 and 3.8v.

26F/26C and 28A have about the same capacity when both are charged to 4.2v, is there any data on whether the 28A will have a longer service life than 26F/C when used under the same conditions?

These, according to the series name in this datasheet, are LiCo cells, which might make me look like an idiot for doing this.

Any circa 2011+ ultrabook will most likely carry cells like these in their packs. Too bad there's no host to accommodate them Silly

Thanks, I’ve never seen those before. Interesting alternative to the pouch-cells that Apple seems to have switched over to.

What is the problem charging them in that charger? The datasheet lists 3.7V nominal, 4.2 charge termination.

I have bee tossing around that idea for a couple days now. When I get a chance I will switch them around. I wish I could add another editor to the spreadsheet post.

The change could better for some. When I open a thread it is only the new posts and in reverse order (except for the original post (post zero). So it is better if the original post is an intro or is packed with info/links and not packed with large images. This also reduces the download streaming requirement at my end – and on the website.
