wstrachan, I’m pretty sure the batteries are safe to use and of decent quality. They come from inland known (chinese or whatever) cell OEMs, I believe. Like Shenzen Yongdeli (Yodeli) and Chang Jiang FST (can someone find CJ FST’s official website? Thanks). Look at some Chang Jiang FST cells (penta lobe tops found!):


 




Seen some 3350mAh specced cells from them, too. 


Of course pretty sure cells from these OEMs are a lot cheaper. This doesn’t gives them the right to pass them as what they’re not. 


 


Cheers Smile

Chang Jiang FST website appears to be this one:

(note: the site is in Chinese though)

(some of the 18650s listed here; clicking the battery will display some specifications and discharge graphs for each battery)

Are you sure the blonde chinese girl in the photo on Liitokala page is Elsa Pataky? I thought the photo on the wiki link you provided looks vaguely familiar, so I did a few google search. I just realised she is the cop/detective in the Fast & Furious series.

To check if there is common problem I’ve ordered tabbed Panasonic NCR18650B also from VariCore and got completly the same fake cells as from Liitokala, just the sticker was different. Famous folded/wrinkled wrapper was there, too. See the picture: VariCore on the top and original Panny on the bottom.

Note there is different font used, “:” sign is even better positioned, but it’s missing 2D barcode.

Made dicharge test along with original cell at 2A and suprisingly I’ve got higher curve and just bit less capacity at about 3250mA:

Comparing Liitokala and VariCore graphs shows they match very closely and I think they are identical. But which ones???

Any word about the new Littokala products, the Lii-PD4, Lii-PL4 and Lii-S2?

Have fun! 

I just watched your video. After watching your video, I double checked the 4 Samsung 30Q batteries I bought from Banggood last year, and they have 3-lobe top as well.

The 7x “slightly flawed” Green Samsung 25R batteries I bought from Trisky last year on his thread here, also have 3-lobe top. Phew Big Smile

Do you have any opinions on these Black Liitokala 26650 cells from Elsa’s Big Smile Liitokala Office Store – 217753 on AE??? At US$15.88 for a pack of 4 before shipping costs, they are very appealing to me. Most importantly for us poor Aussies, this store will ship these batteries to Australia, at a very good and affordable shipping cost of only US$3.16

Is there a way to identify a cell from under the wrapper? Maybe we can find out what cells are being re-wrapped?
