I hope the 6000mAh rating is close to true. If so, I’m very interested.

I’d be really surprised if those were 20A continuous discharge like it says on the label.

Honestly, there's no standard yardstick for label/wrap specifications, and it is anyway wise not to blindly believe in them. 

Bench test results I'll wait for.

When can we get some independent tests? I really wonder if it’s the same cell as Shockli which was measured >5900 mAh at low currents…

Amazing price at NKON – almost half of other vendors! Thumbs Up
I’ll probably get a couple, just because. Facepalm

Thanks all for flagging these up and providing links.

I’ve just ordered four of the protected version from NKON Smile I’ve also added them to HKJ’s review request thread – it might save him a little money if he was planning to test them anyway:

Any BLF review of cells?

Can’t find any test of the new one, but there are several of the older ones. They score good on capacity but less on drain (10A).

They look to be ‘raised top’ and may make contact in serial, but if they don’t a small magnet between them should do.
I ordered two unprotected.

IF this is PLB 55A cell then you can get the unprotected variant for less from Shockli.

That’s with the default test setting of 500mA. Considering the Opus is known to over estimate capacity it would put those cells at about 5700/5800mAh i’d guess.

I can confirm they work in serial.

HKJ got 5841 mAh down to 2.8V from Shockli 5500 mAh. You see more down to 2.9V (that’s what I see here ). So it may actually be a different cell.

I just did a quick ceiling bounce test against a few other 26650 cells i have around, using a direct drive light, and i cant measure much gain compared to a Liitokala 50A. I was hoping for a little bump… Sad

I bought four of the protected version from NKON; all four arrived in good condition at 3.86V. Haven’t tested them yet, but there’s a Convoy BD01 due in soon Smile

The protected version is flat top, and it’s practically dead flat, so I doubt they’d make a reliable connection in series. All of my stuff is single cell, though, so I can’t try it and report with certainty.

This is the version I bought. The photo shows the flat top:

Just made a rather irritating discovery with the protected 6000mAh cells: they are very wide. None of my four will go into my Convoy BD06, yet the protected 5200mAh version fits and has enough space to rattle.

Specs:

Keeppower 5200mAh protected 26650:
26.4mm × 69.5mm

Keeppower 6000mAh protected 26650:
26.8mm × 69.0mm

I was aware of the sizes before I ordered, but I’m having trouble figuring out how 0.4mm is going to make that much of a difference. However, it’s going to be a few days before I can get my hands on my digital caliper and check the measurements for myself.

Fortunately, the 6000mAh cells fit my Convoy X3, so I don’t have to send them back. I’ll just order a couple more 5200mAh cells for the BD06. I hope the BD01 I have coming in has enough clearance for the 6000mAh cells, though.

Edit: the 6000mAh cells don’t fit my BD01, either, but the 5200mAh ones are fine. I’m definitely going to need some more 5200mAh cells!

This is an expensive niche product, whereas Lii-50/INR26650-50A are for sale nearly everywhere online with a price the Lord likes. So, no way.

Also, its capacity statement is probably a sort of lie. Lots of battery rewrappers and even battery manufacturers lie about this with figures you may not see even following their particular datasheet testing methods. Seems a lot of people blindly love in lies, just not me.
