Efest IMR - anyone tried them?

Thinking about grabbing a few 16340 and 18350 of these.. are these comparable to AW or similar IMR’s? thx

Look here for a comparison between the Efest and AW’s http://www.dampfakkus.de/
Select the Efest from the list, and the AW is the default comparison it shows you.

Tried the 14500 and 1500mAh. On a par if not better than AW.

You will notice this is the chart for 2000mAh 18650 AW and Efest /2250mAh SenyBor. The 2000mAh is equal up to 5A but drops off at 10A – too high internal resistance. The 1500mAh and 14500 are much better.

Yes, I noticed that. I just thought if the smaller one was good, the bigger one might be better. Half of the stated capacity seemed wrong, but if the internal resistance is too high, it makes sense.

Have you also measured the 26650 IMR?

Good to have you here Efest, I am using the 18350 version on a mini lavatube and it performs quite well with them.

By the way, what are the minimum order on your shop and shipping costs?

Shops in Alibaba many times are not that good when not buying large quantities due to expensive shipping or very big minimum orders.

For example, how much would it be for a set of two 14500 IMR batteries, and a Stainless Steel V5 VV Mod Kit ?

Thanks, but I would only want a single Stainless Steel V5 VV Mod, if it cannot be sold sepparately, I would not need the 14500 IMR batteries.

Sorry, Yavi. V5 VV Mod can’t sell as single one. There are many Mods can use 14500 battery too, you can try L-Rider, the flat top 14500 battery is best for it. Well, sorry we don’t have that mod, you may try to find out from other suppliers.

If you don’t need efest 14500 battery, no problem, we totally understand. We still want to say thank you very much for focus on efest.

Have a nice weekend.

And two sets of two batteries:

http://www.sz-eyoung.cn/product/656630320-214109833/Efest_IMR_18350_800m...

Would you let me know what would be the price including shipping costs?

I wasn’t too happy with how the 18350’s performed from a consistancy standpoint, although I did cause some of the problem I guess by not cycling and checking them properly.

Thanks for the info ZW99GT, I will not use them in series, they are for a lavatube mini, I already have a pair of them and they are good to me, the lavatube on max voltage gets 3.5A from the battery.

The only other 18350 I have had were the ones from the ( R.I.P) bestinone, and after a few months they are not holding much capacity now, so it is time for new ones efest or AW.

I’ve been happy with their 18650 IMR in my Lavatube Chrome 2.0 (2.5A I think?). I don’t have any way to produce discharge graphs, but IMO they have matched or exceeded my AW. I’m sure the 18350 will do great when used alone.

Speaking of your mini Lavatube, I think you made a great choice there. I saw where you can get the extension cap to run 18650 as well, that makes it quite a diverse device. Would you care to share the link to where you purchased it?

I didn’t know there were extension tubes for them, please give me a link where they are available please.

My Lava mini is the V1, it does not read ressistances, I bought it here, it is a good price being in Europe, for USA I do not know which shops would be better..

Hi Lennart,

Thank you very much for your sharing with the order method.

Yes, the efestbattery.com is a free shipping for retail link, you can just place the order there directly. The orders will be in process soon.

The other site come with minimum amount limited ( USD50.00), so if you didn’t contact with any one of our colleage when your order is less than USD50.00, then will have nobody to response. I’m sorry for this problems.

The best way to communicate with efest is email to us or Skype us.

Thank you.

I think the 700mAh is a newer version (and flat top btw), I don't think HKJ has tested it yet but they 'look good'.
