Are the Golisi 4300, Aspire 4300 and Shockli 4300 the same cell? According to HKJs graphs the Shockli seems a bit worse than the Golisi in the first 700mah. Are they normal variations in performance or are they different cells?

No,,,Shockli 4300 has more of a voltage sag especially at 15A and above.

Golisi and Aspire have been said to be the same cell by the reviewer below.

Not sure - I wouldn't trust those Shockli's though. Yes, definite differences there - look at capacity differences as well - Shockli's test higher. I got a whole bunch of 26650 cells. The iJoy 4200's do pretty good, but less than the Golisi's.

Wow, the Soshine 32650 blows away the Golisi, and the 30T for that matter... Hhhmmm.

Ahh, ok. The charts on page 7 here: SBT90.2 LED Spec. They kind of end at 22.5 amps, and it seems like the Vf would be low enough to be obtainable on a good FET driver. We’ll have to see. I’m wondering now about the Acebeam TK75 getting a rated 6300 lumens. They would have to hit at least 30 amps to do so. Specs could be overrated.


To me, this light may very well need a GOLISI cell. The amps out of a single cell is crazy, about as much as my triple XHP50.2 3V Amutorch X9, custom modded of course… I hit just over 30 amps on a GOLISI in that light. But i also get about double the lumens (11K-12K or so).


 


Vinh claims his modded K75 to deliver fewer lm, so yes, they are overrated. :down:

Ok - his K75 mod is here: https://skylumen.com/collections/v54-lights/products/acebeam-k75vn-best-ultra-thrower... 5300 lumens max, with a little bump in throw to 1.75 Mcd, if 250 kcd is a little...

5300lumens! Does a bigger reflector mean more light is lost or is that something I just made up in head?

Is that from a reputable dealer? With a quick search for golisi cell on google, a lot of vape stores pop up. But who knows if they are the real deal cells.

They work well for me and the capacities were all just over 4300mAh.

When we do a google search Vape stores are the only ones who sell them other than China.

After doing some calculations.. I have come the conclusion that the Golisi/Aspire should be around 20% brighter (over 5A more) than the shockli. Might be more. Who knows? but I don’t like being too optimistic about things like this. Don’t wanna end being disappointed. Oh yh and thanks for the recommendations @BaronVonEissler.

Thanks, I bought two from vapewild. Hope the site is legit. I’m always wary of trying new battery sites. Aliexpress sells this cell too but when it comes to batteries, I don’t buy from Ali unless it is a well known vendor.

I bought my 2 GOLISI's from 3avape back in March - seem good to me. They came in nice black plastic cases. Shipping is up there but usually is.

You are welcome Th558 and SKV89 Beer

I bought my Golisi’s from Vape wild and 3Avape. They also came in nice plastic caskets!

I think you will be satisfied with them [as legitimate] from either dealer.

In the UK the best price I can find is £11. I can get two for £18 but I don’t need two.

Just a suggestion depending on how you use the light.

That depends on how much you like Turbo[Max output]. My friends FT03 W/XHP50.2 is 4000 lumens at turn on. He told me it gets 10 to 12 minutes of combined max output w/ a Golisi.I would think this light would drain the battery at least and probably a little more than that with a Golisi or Aspire 26650 4300mAh.

I bought Three batteries for this light. My mistake was that I bought it a few weeks ago without knowing about the group buy on here. Facepalm

Bought two Golisi for $21 shipped… used a different website from your vapewild link, since vapewild was a stupid $12 shipping with account creation required and signature for package required… never going on that website again. So dumb.

What?! I did not have to create an account or signature required and $12 shipping?! and it was my first time ordering.

Where do you live?

I did not have to do any of that. I got Two for $19.98 plus $5 shipping

Where did you get them?

EDIT: For that price shipped you must have gotten them from 3Avape or another place in China.

This is what I paid for the batch of Two from 3Avape:

Placed on October 16, 2019 5:02:57 AM HKT

Item Sku Qty Subtotal

Golisi IMR 26650 35A 4300mAh High Drain Battery Qty. 2-$12.60

Subtotal $12.60

Shipping & Handling $6.95

Grand Total $19.55

Shipping is $5.99 for me. I had to create an account though as they only accept credit card and not Paypal. Where did you get yours?

I bought off of them once. Basically the same price as Vape Wild and took too long to get here for my liking. To be fair and from my experience from China to USA it can take anywhere from 10 days to 6 or 7 weeks.If Vape wild runs out, 3Avape is my next choice. Great price and only 12 days to get here.

For Two Golisi

Vape Wild- USA Based-$25.97- 3 Days

3Avape-China based-$19.55- 12 Days

Everzon-China based- $25.67- 27 Days

Vape Wild was $32 total for me ($12 shipping, 5-8 days, signature required)

Everzon was $21 total ($5 shipping and I had a 25% Halloween discount being promoted on the front page) Everzon claimed 7-15 day shipping. I’m hoping for the lower end.

Big difference for me for some reason. I’m on the east coast.

Thanks for the stores. I’ll try me a couple of these golisi. Is is safe to say the aspire 4300 are just as good as the golisi?
Have you guys tried keeppower 5200’s? I was surprised that this cell gave me more lumens than the shockli’s.

My SBT90.2 NI40 order from Oct. 23rd hasn't shipped, but I guess I didn't make Neal's "tester" list. I put in an order on Oct 31st and that one just shipped, but it's mainly batteries. Neal responsiveness varied greatly - I've asked bout combining orders but he hasn't answered.

Neal has been pretty good to me though, throwing in extras, etc., and usually responds well to emails. I've had one issue/concern with Nightwatch though - I still have a NA40 with a messed up tailcap form the first batch I haven't been able to get a replacement for - again, those emails/messages went unanswered. I've never gotten a response to that popup messaging system on the website.
