Golisi high drain 18650 bench test result (by Mooch)

Below are the links to the test results.




“ Testing cells at their limits is dangerous and should never, ever, be attempted by anyone who has not thoroughly studied the dangers involved and how to minimize them.

If the cell has only one current rating number on it, or if it only says “max” then I have to assume that the company is stating that the cell can be discharged at that current level in any way, including continuously.

Bottom Line

This cell has “25A CDC” on the wrap which I believe is a continuous discharge current rating. While this is a bit of an overrating I am delighted to say that there is no useless “max” or “pulse” rating on the wrap

The wrap has “IMR 18650” on it but this cell does not use the battery chemistry often associated with the IMR model number prefix. It uses the chemistry associated with the INR prefix.

This cell appears identical, and performs essentially identical, to the LG HG2. I am rating this Golisi cell at 20A and 3000mAh. Its maximum vaping amps (MVA) limit is 25A, limited by temperature.

The two cells that were tested were donated by Golisi for that purpose. Thank you!

Continuous-Current Test Results

Pulse-Current Test Results

At 10A continuous this cell delivered 2808mAh. This is average performance for a 3000mAh rated cell at 10A so I am rating it at 3000mAh.
