What post?

I was in one of my recent battery reviews that somebody say I got most of the stuff I review for free, get paid for the reviews and make them accordingly, but he makes much more reliable reviews because he uses his own money. I could only find 3 reviews from 2016 and he copies my heading style (test/review in the title).

Maybe the link works this time: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?426727

Soo, you get stuff for free? Fine…

… get paid for the reviews? Fine…

… (insert whatever random baseless complaint)? Fine. Smile

It's our very own judgement what really makes or breaks for us.

No more drama for me is one of my singsongs.

Nice, it all went faster than I thought, so not the first year just available for cars, but straight to the single cell markets.
It is waiting now for the first flashlight using the 20700. Dale?

Really? Innocent

Ouch! That was from another movie, I presume… 

 

Mmmkay, 20700s… why? At what price? High price/value quotients mean “nothing” in my world.

On the other hand, pretty sure lots of those flashlights designed with 3×AAA adapters in mind should be able to work with this new format, at least if there's room for those 5mm of extra battery tube lenght.

 

Cheers Party

He might the first flashlight guy with hands on a 21700 cell

But I dont see why manufactors switch to those cells before there is a market with protected cells established
Only if they want to sell their own cells with the lights to make more profit

It depends if people want to jump on a new type of batteries before they are established

HKJ, have you seen this ?
Vbatty representative wants to send you their 14500 cells.
I for one would be very interested in your review.

No, I have been busy today, but they did send a pm and I have answered that.
I do not know if they only plan on the 14500 cell or will include other cells.

Hi HKJ,

I would be interested in test results from these newest Efest 18500 cells. I noticed that they provide a bit more amps to my flashlight builds than the lila version that you tested before.

I bought them at rookwinkel.nl, and I’m not sure where else they have this version, even rookwinkel shows an older picture, I was surprised I got these. I could have two of these sent to you?

Hey HKJ,

thanks to all the great reviews and tests. Since I know your site I don’t buy batteries without them reviewed by you. Wink

What about testing the Liitokala 26650 cells?!

Get them on Gearbest quite cheap.

Later this year there will allegedly be a Panasonic/Sanyo NCR20700C cell available, rated at 30A like the 20700A but with 200-300 more mAh.

I would love to test that cell, but shipping is hopeless from US to EU.
You can order it from germany, shipping to EU is 13€/20€. akkuplus.de/Panasonic-NCR-20700B-36-Volt-4250mAh-Li-Ion-LiNiCoALO2 akkuparts24.de/Panasonic-Sanyo-NCR20700B-36V-4250mAh-Li-Ion-Akku-Zelle

Thanks, I have put in an order (My German was a bit stretched, even tough I live next to German I cannot handle their language)

We’ve talked about it about 2 months ago. In the meanwhile I received them from KD. I believe they’re really good for their money.

I’d mix up the manufacturer.
Look there, they ship to every country in the EU:

It is the A and the coming C model I am interested in links to, I have tested the B model.
There is also a NCR20*65*0A model, I do have that in queue (I was planning on getting the NCR20700A and did not notice the difference).

LG has two 20650 cells that I am aware of, but I have not seen them for sale to the public:

model M42: 15A and 4200mAh
model HG6: 20A and 3000mAh

I do not have any opinion yet, the data is still on the test station and I have not looked at it.

With regards to those Trustfire IMR14500 cells, good value for the money. Measured 80 & 82mΩ internal resistance for my units, which translates into up to ≈5A discharge rate.

Oh! By the way, HKJ, soldered a USB micro-B connector this evening. Measured resistance between the wire lines is ≈2.5MΩ, so I am wondering if this could be an issue, data wise of course. Damn…
Self-answering my previous question: data transmission issues. Flat Stare

By the way:

Sanyo 20700A 30A 3100mAh 20700 Bench Test Results...a great performing 30A 3100mAh battery! @Mooch/ECF

On another note, the popular LiitoKala 26650A/B is still “untested”. 

 

Cheers Party
