So I only bought 3 packs. These showed 2 bars when I pressed the test button, the rest showed only 1 bar… lets see how the voltage is .. time to open 1 up.

If you’d rather get a very good deal from edcplus, don’t open them up unless you need high drain cells

Or even if you need high drain cells, I can get you some brand new ones, even the same ones that are in the pack of you want. Smile

I have some CGR18650CH’s on hand along with IMR 26650’s. Any other high power cell I’d special order, but its not a problem for me to get them…

Such a generous offer from EDCPlus!.

I'll definitely be sending a couple of packs to you (I just picked up 2 from Home Depot).

Its great to see that no one has blown themselves up yet to save a few dollars on some very low capacity cells. I hope it stays that way. Good luck to all…

@Flashpilot, very true. These things are a PIA to take apart.

Following the thread, it sure looks that way. Just makes my cringe to think that a dead short can be welded in a fraction of a second, and then…

Who would of thought that drilling out a screw head would spin the screw deeper into the pack and almost pierce one of the cell casings all the way thru. It was very close. I brought that cell outside and it vented there.

When I was taking mine apart I was literaly sitting 3 feet from the door with an ammo can, a gas mask, and a shovel (to pile dirt on it). That thing was scary...

PM’s responded too. Smile

And Yes I will take all the packs I can get. I will keep a few for personal use and have other uses for them as well. May even use a few in an electric scooter wired in series. Smile

If everyone does end up trading packs to me I may end up with over 50 haha. >) Then I can power my house! j/k

  If you can find LMr's anywhere else any cheaper ,I'll kiss your ugly sister .

  When I run multiple cell lights this is exactly what I use . 

Safety first ....runtime is secondary.

Just picked up one, the HD store had 2 more sort of hidden on a top shelf (location kept secret!). If EDCPlus stills wants them, maybe I'll PM him because the pulling apart sounds scaru, uhhmm, scary. I got the Samsung INR 1500's (high amps) listed at  $6.18/pair from FT, so $2.30 isn't much of a savings, though they are out of stock now...

 These batts are great for XM-L2/SinkPAD single 18650 cell, over-driven lights btw. The Samsung INR's do 3.9 amps - no problem, and 2 in parallel can do 4.25A (T08 for example) - no problem.
