Button top version now in stock at Illumn

Good price, but illumn shipping fees usually kill the deal, unless you order at least $50 worth of stuff.

Just ordered a pair from illumn. The $3.75 shipping I can live with. I have a pair of protected Xtar 14500 arriving today from Xtar’s ebay store. Now I have a total of 6 14500 cells. Thanks for the heads up TexasToasted. Thumbs Up

Vapcell, I just saw HKJ’s test. Impressive results, you have raised the bar for 14500 capacity. Thumbs Up
I’m leaving here to go order a couple of sets. Big Smile
Now bring on some improvements in the 16340 cell. Wink

I think they only rewrap the bar actually..
I assume more will be sold with different branded wraps in the future.
(Like the 1100mAh 18350 cells first sold by Aspire)
None the less, kudo’s to Vapcell for being the first. Beer
…and at a very affordable price too. Thumbs Up

I ordered 4 from Illumn. $3.75 shipped. I’ve tried them in the Utorch Ut01 and the Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 for a few minutes each is all. Very good so far but not enough run-time to be sure how they will do but I am optimistic. I don’t have anything that draws much over 2A so I can’t try it in higher drain devices.

light addict....yeah I've got the bug.

I’ve just checked AE vapcell store, because I need some 16340, but did not find any. When it will be available?

Yes! Thanks Dennis for making these 16340’s possible via Vapcell. In a quick comparison with the discontinued AW 16340 15C, I see comparable performance but with 200mAh more capacity Thumbs Up I will certainly get me a number of these for my hotrod 16340 builds!

And what about those blue Vapcell 650mAh 14500 cells, are they new too? The capacity is not great but they are high current. Would anyone know how they perform against the purple Efest 14500 cells?

This is April the 1st, so is this a april fools joke or do we get a link to buy. Silly
Where are you finding any specs on these djozz?
Found it, its the graph in the first post. I thought that was for the 14500 but I know see its the 16340. If it had been a snake I’d be bit. Facepalm .

I’m sorry that the photographer asked for leave recently. I still have a lot of new products waiting to be released.

16340 will sell in AE soon

When I do a google search for “vapcell 16340” they come up at banggood but when I clink the link it goes to banggood then hangs up. Tried both Chrome and IE, last night and today. I’m ready to pull the trigger on a half a dozen of these if I new which way to shoot.

Thanks you very much

We will try our best to make the batteries for you.

But there may also be huge difficulties caused by sales restrictions.

Yes, vapcell 14500 650 mah and efest have similar performance.

But I can get better 14500 power batteries. The MOQ that the factory gave me is too big.

I just started selling these 14500,16340 batteries.

I hope sales will be better in the future.

Dennis, do you have a link for the 16340’s yet?
When available, please post it here. I went to the AliExpress store but couldn’t find it.

Also, it would be nice to send some for HKJ to test. According to him, here:

The banggood may have an advertising partnership with Google. Smile

I do often have some queue, at the current time it is very bad for >2800mAh batteries, but I only have one Vapcell branded battery in queue at the current time and it goes on the tester very soon.

Wow Shocked , HKJ is here. He reply so quickly..

Thanks very much

Maybe I misremembered. Many users or testers contacted us for samples.

I checked it. I remember that we have shipped red 18650 2800 MAH 25A and 21700 4500 MAH 20A.

I wonder if you haven’t received the samples. Thank you

Thank you again for your test

We should send you fewer batteries than 2800 mah. Big Smile

I do not have a red 2800mAh from your, but I have a black I bought myself, it is tested, but not published yet.
The 4500mAh is the one I have left in queue.

I test most batteries I get or buy, but a few do not get published for different reason: they get to old before I can test them, another reason can be a fault on my test station, (This happens a few times each year), sometimes I can use the data, sometimes not. And sometimes I makes mistakes when testing.

Well, thank you very much for your information.

red 18650 2800 MAH 25A ,it’s lost. Crying

If you want to test vapcell batteries or other batteries that we have in stock, please contact me and I will arrange for shipment to you. Smile

I’d like to send you a lot of batteries for testing. I’m afraid you’re too busy.

So some battery samples haven’t been sent to you yet.

With >2800mAh I have a couple of months queue, but the test station for the smaller sizes is basically empty. I have been using it to test cheap batteries on (I do not care about the <=2800mAh rating for cheap batteries).
The reason for the split at 2800mAh is to always test same capacity on same test station, this gives the absolutely best comparison (There is a small difference between the two test stations).
