Aspire 18350?

Hello, I wanted to share some really nice batteries I found. 

http://www.aspirecig.com/products/MOD/mod367.html

I don't know how they did it but Aspire squeezed 1300mah and 15Amps out of an 18350. I ordered some a week or so ago and they showed up just a few days later. I have not done extensive testing on them except capacity and they really are 1300mah. They rocked in my Astrolux S41 much longer than my AW or Efest 18350's. Just wanted to get something started on these and see where it goes. Will post more of my findings soon.

I found this aspire 18350 discharge curves from dampfakkus

Wow, impressive performance. It blows away any other 18350 cell in capacity, and it seems to have low IR comparable to other high drain 18350s.

They are amazing! I've been using them in series and they with quite well. They are a really nice upgrade for capacity over anything else I've found. They also do well under high amps.

If those specs are real, that would be very nice. Thumbs Up

edit:
It seems they’re hard to find…
Any suggestions on where to buy?

Had just tested and result is Aspire has 60 % more capacity than Efest IMR 700..so above 1120 mAh.

Can you measure the dimensions of that Aspire. Sure looks bigger from that perspective.

It’s the prospective, don’t worry about dimensions. They are the same!

ships cheaper, but charges €9.37 per battery. Slightly cheaper when buying 2, but still expensive.

Quite a surprising jump in capacity! Shocked

I’m not far from Svapostore but the 10 euro shipping sort of kills the deal, even for four cells – 25 euro. I paid less for a set of four 30Qs i received today.

Still… why do i think i urgently need some? Facepalm

Would be sweet if they stocked some.

Look nice, but ≈1100mAh and a 7A max continuous rating would be far more accurate. Their internal resistance is not of high discharge class (voltage sag is ludicrous), worse than that of modest Sammie 26Fs, those single in class 26350s and or TrustFire IMR14500s (red-gold). 

 

Cheers Party

Still… at 1050 mAh and 7A this 18350 battery is more then welcome.

It’s been around since August 2016 – at least nine month, but it doesn’t seem to have drawn much attention… that’s odd, but that’s not a very popular size either.

As I see in the graphs, they could deliver about 1036mAh down to 3V at 3A discharge rate. Two of these cells in series still can't match a top brand 18650 in performance, but with this improvement it can make sense to employ an LD-29 driver and enjoy a spectrum of fully regulated modes without PWM and the ability to “fully” utilize the cells. With such input, I bet the LD-29 could drive a standard emitter at 5A max (or close), with a nice mid of 1.5A and a 250mA low.

Oh! Yes, I like fully regulated drivers.

They would be very nice for many short lights up to 10 Watts.

Why 10W? I’d guess they would do well in the A6 or S41 too?

They’re not high discharge cells, so they would get hot and / or sag significantly with high currents.\
It’s a bit like the good old Panasonic 3400mAh 18650.
They are just not made for high current.

Seems Keeppower has some 1200mah 10A 18350s as well now.

And highdrain protected 18650s..

Listed under batterys on BG.

Keeppower P1835C2? The Aspire (YDL) cell with a different wrap and a protection circuit, for sure.

Thanks for the tip!
But I’ve already been using Aspire 18350 for a couple of months, got mine from Aspire in China.
My point was rather that BG apparently no longer have a way to ship Li-Ion to Sweden (adding a box is not enough anymore).

Hi All,

I was just wondering what single RCR123 flashlights these can actually fit in? I have a Jetbeam RRT01 and a Manker E14II, and an Astrolux S42s on order, but are there any others people would recommend?

Thanks very much,

TA
