Hi everybody, They are a bit pricy, and apparently rated for “40,000 charge cycles”, the Muyshondt 18650 is. Unlimited illumination via solar charger? They are recommended for single cell devices only, so I thought about appropriateness for this neat mini-lantern. I got four nice 18650s, from another brand, for the big brother, rated at 500 charges. Is the devil in the details? I have a budget, too, but this sounds like food for thought.

Gracias, Lemurian

It’s a normal lithium battery as far as they state. Protected and unprotected, anyone else know of these?

Let’s see… Samsung and Sony are claiming charge cycles in the 500 cycle range. You have a small company claiming 100x that? Doesn’t smell right to me.

I have four nice 18650s from the “new” FourSevens for my BLF LT1 that are listed at 500 cycles. I think Muyshondt (an electrical engineer) himself wrote that his 18650s are from the electric vehicle space. They are also gold plated for anti-corrosion, I believe. The gold was an unusual request that may have made the cells take longer to procure, if I remember correctly. I grabbed two very early on at a discount. His torches are neat but a little out of my price range…okay, some are kind of a lot out of my price range! I hope I don’t have to repost in a hundred years, “Yep, they sure so work as advertised!” I am curious to see if someone might have an inside scoop. Maybe I should contact the company. I have not seen anything indicating that the company is shifty. The torches have tested very well.

His website states’ holding more energy than equivalent lithium primary cells’, and then lithium can be volatile. Then goes on to state they are 3400 mAh batteries that are lithium ion protected and unprotected. So they are better and hold more energy but hold the same and are li ion cells in another sentence. I call bs, the gold plated parts sound good, but involved in electric vehicle space sounds bad as well. Then here is the description of the actual battery ‘MPC-18350I Power Cell is an unprotected, IMR chemistry lithium-ion cell, and requires precautions on the part of the end user to ensure safe operation and longevity of the cell’.

The company sells 18650s and 18350s. Isn’t the “MPC-18350” the 18350?

Yes the 18650 is a standard battery as well from what they describe and they also sell a non rechargable. Again nothing new.
