not a bad deal for 25 bucks with free shipping

don’t need the charger or quite that much bogus power reserve, how ‘bout these: 5 for $11

and they’re tested before shipping:

I’m placing an order for some of that shrink wrap labeling highlighted in this post here right away! Glasses

I think you should buy them all before someone else comes along and buys them out ..."these won't last long" ....in more than just one way ... Silly

5000mAh for all 8 batteries total, that’s 625mAh per battery – seems quite possible! Silly Big Smile

The Ultrafire 18650 in the red label is probably fake, http://laserpointerforums.com/f67/fake-ultrafire-18650-s-72833.html

It contains mostly white powder of unknown origin.

Definate fakes mAH should be mAh.

What’s happening is that drug cartels are getting too smart for their own good. Rather than smuggling cocaine in 18650 cells that don’t actually work (bulk lots of cells reading at 0v would be suspicious), they’ve managed to actually cram a tiny bit of energy into them as well. The problem is that someone, somewhere, has, as a result, mistaken them for marketable consumer products. This explains two things: the terrible performance, and the pictures above.

True story!

Group buy! Custom label should read "10,000 mEH".

According to latest international electrical code labeling Wink – once the claimed capacity of counterfeit batteries rises >200% above potential capacity, the lowercase “h” is capitalized to emphasize the absurdity

LMAO@the white powder!!! Big Smile Did you smell it? Add it to water? Heat it up? Any guesses? lol!

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

Anybody tried the 4000mAh ‘gold’ Ultrafires that are going on eBay? (£9.95 for 4 shipped)

I ordered them before I did my research and they just landed today. I’m still waiting on my Hobby charger to arrive so can’t test them but I know they must be fakes from what I’ve read so far. I’ve contacted the seller as I’m doubly brassed off that he advertised as being UK yet clearly works out of China. Worth keeping or time to test the paypal dispute system?

On principal, get a dispute going, they won’t be what they claim, trust me.

In the mean time do some reading in the battery section, then buy some keep power 3400 cells…

I’m going to see what his response is and take it from there. If I manage to get something back I might have to drop CM2010 a PM re the ones he’s got going.

The seller replied with 11 hours and agreed to a full refund Smile

He didn’t even ask for the batteries back so I’m going to give them a test once my charger is set-up (and my lipo bag has arrived!)

Be sure to take plenty of photo’s, put up a post including the seller id and all your findings, information is power.

I do need to get some magnets and make up some leads for my hobby charger or mod some battery boxes into charging cradles, be interesting to see just how bad my brc ultrafires really are…

If that is false, what can I find here?
