Mine is still early in the game. However, it shows NO movement in the last 4 days. Question

I put five in the cart and then checked out with PP. No shipping indeed. This has been mentioned a few times in this thread.

Mmm, they're in china and seem to be having a deal of shipping issues. I believe they have not done well their homework in this regard and all of you have been gaming their website to get the lowest quotes; hope this serves as incentive for them to offer some sort of inexpensive and/or flat rate shipping options in the near future.

Good luck.

Single XHP70 with two of these in a Convoy S2 package (zener mod FET driver, 16mm DTP MCPCB from MTN and some copper from kiriba-ru) or a triple on a single Aspire INR18350 drowling

Too bad the shipping to The Netherlands is ridiculous…

I tried several times to order four cells before, and each time i went to ‘estimate shipping’ and got a $12 added fee so didn’t place the order.
But the last time, i ordered five, ignored shipping and went straight for the PP checkout… and no shipping cost was added. That’s probably a bug… I’ll see what happens. I haven’t looked at tracking or whether the order has been shipped yet.

Have you tried the Danish site from where HKJ got the cells for the test? https://www.nonsmokers.dk/en/batteries-32/18350-batteri-1300-mah-flad-to...

Hi ..

I ordered six from www.nonsmokers.dk on Friday, got them in today.
(If I read the label right it says 160829) (As seen in post 1 by HKJ)
So they are probably from the same stock.
Running check on them now.. we will see how it goes..

Edit:
Tested four of them in my Powerfocus

  1. 1160 mAh
  2. 1137 mAh
  3. 1113 mAh
  4. 1183 mAh
    Have not tested the two last.

Yeah, not exactly cheap…
But the shipping should be faster and hopefully less.

The USPS is saying they should be delivered on Tuesday the 20th. Can’t wait to see if they make a difference in the Ti X6….

Got my 8 in a few minutes ago. First 2 are close to being charged up, will test them in the Ti X6 I bought em for…

In the triple XHP-50.2 light these, freshly charged, yield 9660 lumens. The rested pair of dark metallic purple Efests gave 10,005 and when recharged gave 10,350. In my Titanium Quad Nichia 219 EDC I see 14.5A from the Efest 18500 cell and 10.6A from one of these brand new Aspire 18350. The 18500 is rated as a 1000mAh 15A cell, so I had hoped the Aspire at some 1200mAh and the same 15A rating might fare as well, but it doesn’t.

Hm.

So Efest 18500 is still better for max ouput sounds like. Guess I won’t be in a rush to go order these new 18350s.

Mine arrived at 11:30 this morning[Monday]. Just got around to getting my simple test done.

Delivery time:9 days to Philadelphia,PA.

Battery voltages upon arrival: 4 × 3.83V, 1× 3.67V

Discharge rate: .5Amps

Four slot Median:1140mAh-1.9% Lower than HKJ

HKJ @ .5Amps=1162mAh

I got 6 in the mail yesterday and pulled all my 18350 lights. Some are regulated well and had no change. S41 and BLF A6 ran about 0.5-1.1 amps better than the Kinoko 850’s and the Efest 700’s. So now we have a higher amp, higher capacity battery that I can only seem to order 6 at a time without outrageous shipping. Probably better this way.

I just received my set of 4 (max for reasonable shipping cost to Sweden) and after charging I put one in a S41 with 219B. It is very noticeable brighter than with any other 18350 I have tried. Very nice 18350 indeed.

Nice and safe packaging BTW.

At 1100mAh and compared to a 900mAh 18350 (if they exist) that’s at least a 22% increase in capacity.
It’s like receiving a 4200mAh 18650! Party

Got two Aspires from nonsmokers.dk today. They are from different batches marked PG05 and PG06 with different barcodes. There’s a significant difference in the IR.

Good catch on the batch number!

The five cells i received from Aspire are all PG05 like the ones reviewed here.
That sharp drop to less then 4V at 1A is disturbing and does not show on the OP first post though… It would be closer to the 3A discharge curve?

Hmmm…
I got the last 4 Djozz had for sale.
3 are ‘PG06’ and 1 is ‘PG05’
I guess i’ll use the PG05 one for lower current lights then..
