Samsung 2800mAh cells from FastTech measure 2714 mAh (lowest) to 2778 mAh (highest) down to 3V at 1A after being charged to 4.3V. Smile

Darn, those LED's are cheap! $4.52 for a T6 3C on a 20mm, U2's cheaper still ... The 2mm thickness - not sure, but that sounds real thick for a standard star... Others have them listed as 1.0mm or 1.6mm, gotta wonder if that 2mm is real for the star - need to ask them.

New addtions are great! Prices are awesome. But, we still need U3's and XP-G2's!!

Thanks for testing. Little low isn’t it?

Considering FastTech rates them at 4000, I think it is right on considering variances in testing methods/meters.
At $8.23 each shipped, These are probably the best deal out there in a 26650.
JMHO, YMMV
Thanks,
Keith

Probably a bit low, can remember what I measured earlier from some other vendor.
I might note that this is the very first cycle…

Shipping has be slow for me I didn't use registered but it usually takes between 2 to 3 weeks. This has been the slowest so far apart from ebay.

Fasttech should get a few hobby chargers in, and various balance charging wires / kits.

I could use a cheap price on an Icharger!

Same here. Ordered at 7th and according to tracking they will put it into plane out of HK at 18th... 11 days to get it to the plane. So I think they ship fast only to US.

But prices are good (at least for now). And they have/are getting some nice stuff.

I desperately need a new 106B+, but I’d prefer shelling out less than $100 (it’s price at HK w/ shipping)

Not so fast for me either, and I'm in the US.  Ordered Thurs Dec. 6th (afternoon), shipping notice Mon. Dec 10th, HK tracking "Acceptance" Dec 12th, "Processed through HK sort facility" Dec 15th.

All of HK post is slow this time of year.
My next order with any of them I am going to spring for DHL or something like that.
I got a package from LightsCastle via DHL a while back in like 5 days.
That speed is worth it some times.

Meanwhile I just pretend these packages from half way around the world are circling my house waiting for landing clearance Smile

It is a nice surprise when they just show up unannounced and it never fails that when one shows up there is another in the box the same day.
Then it’s Like Christmas !

Thanks,
Keith

I do think the shipping is a combination of Christmas post and the fact that the cheap prices are gaining attention, I bet the daily recieved orders are jumping exponentially on a daily basis.

Thumbs up though, their really pandering to us :-

Jasmine,

Any chance of getting these 4 Nizn 1.6V 2500mWh AA Battery GENIX + PowerGenix ZR-PGX1HRAA-4B Charger?
They are the 1.6v NiZn Batteries and chargers for same.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/150952957980?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3...

They would be nice to boost up AA flashlights without damage and get better performance than the typical 1.2 volt Nimh rechargables.

Thanks,
Keith

At one time, brandless “energizer lithiums” were available on eBay for 1$ / each. Capacity was within 5% from original energizers…
I think these very well could be lithium primaries and I have not yet heard of bad ones in AA size.

No, not rechargable. More like budget Energizer Lithium batteries.
Long shelflife, work well in cold weather etc.

I got my first order today, orderd 5 dec shipped 10hours later. With tracked airmail.
For me that is fast, I have dozens of packages from other vendors in pipeline and some are made weeks before and still not here…

Too bad that I ordered just things I really don’t need.

Does it show up on tracking? My order says shipped 4 days ago but HK post still doesn’t have it in their system yet.

That was it.
I checked all my packages on the site of my national post which delivers the packages but there wasn’t mentioned that it arrived here in Germany, so I was surprised when the postman asked to sign for a package…

Perhaps I have to think over an other method for following the tracking of many items.

Hey, ML-102 charger just arrived to FT. I love this one and always keep in my bag. I already have 18650 light and a couple of spare batteries in my bag so it automatically makes an emergency charger for my iPhone as well.

Nice little device. If I have a 18650 in the device and hook it to my cell phone which is almost dead, how many charges can I expect to get from a 18650 or from a 26650 cell?

With Panasonic 3400mAh cell, you can expect 2 full re-charges of a “dumbphone” or 1 to 1.5 full re-charges of a smartphone (depends on what model you have).

my order was shipped 8 days ago, the 10th, but i still can’t track it neither on HK post nor 17track.net.

after i had placed my $45 order i remembered that i needed a couple of US-EU plug adapters, so i e-mailed fasttech and wanted them added to my order, and to my surprise they said i get them for free. So i saved $1.54 there :bigsmile:
and fasttech might get that money back later on when i order more stuff thanks to good customer service Wink

And don't forget to pickup a couple of these USB power adapters to go with it.  I have two ML-102's and I use these to power them.  Nice chargers!

Looks like you might need the USB cable for charging.  I bought mine from Int'l Outdoor and the USB cable was included, but I don't see where FastTech is including it.
