I’m wrapping all my Sanyo cells in Ultrafire wrappers.

What really worries me are the 26F wrappers. If some of those get there way into the supply chain of BG for example, the best place to get budget protected is screwed.

Fasttech kinda lost my business when a light they supposedly had in stock wasn’t. For over a month. This clinches the deal.

I thought we had this complaint to fasttech before and they agreed to voluntarily pull it out, I guess they don’t care anymore, since most of their flashlights business pretty much is going to banggood or gearbest nowaday

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

i “sent a question” asking them to remove the product. I doubt they will, but I’m more interested to see how they respond.

The sad thing is that you/they are probably right.

A disaster waiting to happen is the widespread use of LiIons in e-cigs. Sales are exploding. My guess is that a lot of really rubbish cells and chargers are sold to totally unsuspecting customers.

Sales are “exploding”… Heheh

Stock up on cells now before the Feds block imports.

I recall that, vaguely. I’m sure they’re hoping it was long forgotten.

Perhaps a competition for the stupidest thing anyone can manage to shrinkwrap in a Fasttech wrapper?

Little Vienna sausages, partly smoked cigars, sardines, lipsticks ….. credit Fasttech as the supplier, get it up in search results, YouTube an award ceremony …

The button top caps these seem useful. Maybe I’ll buy some and see if I can convert my laptop pulls to button tops with these.

How do you apply any style of these button top caps

to properly work on flattop batteries ?

I believe you're supposed to wrap the heat shrink over the top covers.

But beware! A second cap can result in a decreased performance since the internal resistance rises. At least at higher currents this could be a disadvantage. I found this article with measurements of current Keeppower 26650 cells (in German) which performed better when the additional cap was removed:

Wow, the only thing I can say is they can put these damn things around their necks and apply heat.Very deceptive, they should really remove them.

Personally I think we only have ourselves to blame

All us blf members so efficiently emptying every battery recycling box we see of laptop batteries and power tool packs

There’s now nothing left for the Chinese to use to f/make Ultrafire batteries with, so their selling off the ultrafire labels and metal tops to make ends meet :bigsmile:

Why blame the retailer for filling a demand, remove the demand and problem solved Beer

I thought I’d strip off the old wrapper, super glue the button tops to the cell, place one of the sealing rings on it, and then put on a new battery sleeve. In order to reduce the resistance with the cap and get a better contact I would also drill a hole in the button top, run a small braided wire through it, solder it to the cap, and then solder the other end to the positive top of the laptop cell.

Since this is a “new and improved “ battery I’m thinking I’d write HonestFire on the battery sleeve, 12000mAh capacity and good for 100A draw. Should be easy to move a bunch of them on Ebay for $19.99 each. But for BLF members I’d be willing to discount to offer a 5% discount Silly
