LG HG2 *better start running*

I just got them the other day and noticed the warning. Buying these batteries are strictly prohibited. OMG are the cops coming to get me now??

If LG Electronics is a legislative body in your area, then you might want to lay low for a while.

The people who could get in trouble are the resellers, not the buyers.

An LG-man always gets his man. So be prepared.

The only thing to stop him from knocking on your door is by use of a hacksaw.
So the damn cell can no longer “LG phone home”.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Is that LG a genuine one?

I’ve tried sourcing “LG HG2” from various local sources in my country, but most of them are non-genune, with varying quality. Some are very cheap prices (which I understand if the tested capacity is low), but at other times the price is almost similar to one that I have deemed to be genuine and capacity tests out OK, but IR is a bit higher — I think that some might actually just be rewrapped “DLGH” 18650s, which would have similar capacity as LG HG2 but higher IR (note that most of these local stores will just say theirs are “genuine” even if they likely don’t know how to check capacity).

Anyway, I’ve had an LG HG2 with almost similar marking as yours, R182F302A5 where yours is R182F302AD (last digit different). That HG2 I have is a non-genuine one, it tests around correct capacity using analyzing charger to do discharge capacity test (ie. around 3000mAh), but AC IR (using YR1030 tester) gives around 30mOhms AC IR (the genuine HG2 appears to have 14-15mOhms AC IR).

(Reason I surmise the non-genuine HG2 could actually be using “DLGH” 18650 is that the “DLGH” 18650 which I also have, will also test around 3000+ mAh capacity test and has AC IR of around 30mOhms.)

I got them from 2 sellers,

 As if it's genuine, the store seller has 8691 feedback score. I msg them also and they said 100% genuine. I know it's by word of mouth but they look genuine. I'll do a size measurement and discharge test and will post the results if that helps any.smile

Tear that label off your pillow and wrap them in that. Then no one will know. Great disguise.

The ones I got recently from liionwholesale don’t have that label.

Looks like they restocked them in their sale section at $3.99 btw:

Those are fake. I’ve never seen an HG2 with that label. I have 4 and they don’t have that.

This website may offer an explanation for the labeling on those LG cell’s
LG StaySafeBattery

I think they (LG) are being proactive regarding any misuse or unintentional use of their products.

The warning doesn’t indicate flashlights so you’re safe

Maybe this is for discussion…

But why these when genuine 30Q are easily available?

Genuine Lg h2’s are just as easily available. I’ve used them for years in my e-cig mods—clearly in arrears of the law. I hate surprises. Didn’t know it was this big of a deal. Should I turn myself in now or just wait? I don’t know….looking out the window when a car passes by, could it be the battery police? No, just kept on going but…went around the corner. Might have stopped.Uh,oh, shrouded person with a shopping cart coming up the sidewalk . It’s gotta be them. I think it’s best I turn myself in right now, don’t you?

Keep your nose in the wind and your eyes along the skyline.

“LG HG2” is super popular (common) in most vape shops locally (I’m not a vaper, but a casual check will often see them pushing “LG HG2” which they call “LG Choco” locally).

Usually, when I ask about Samsung 30Q, the local vape shops here will just scratch their heads. It’s very difficult to find Samsung 30Q in our country until very recently when there’s now a local seller of it. I used to purchase many units of “BLF A6 + 30Q” batteries from BG just to get Samsung 30Qs…

Oh understand… Vaping & Flashlight…

I guess it gotta do with locations and availability as well…
