These cells have been holding a charge very well.

The low mode should be lower.

Bought one of these as the affordable 5800 market seems to have dried up for a bit:

Obviously they’re 2600 Sanyos, just like the pack says.

Cells were 2 volts and took 5 charges to hold a charge, but they’re holding now. Seem to work dandy.

Now that I have a lux meter, I need to get a hobby charger to start checking capacity on these batteries.

Hoping to expand my collection to all 2600+ cells and giveaway anything less in the mah dept.

>>>>>With the number of batteries I have, I want them all fully charged.

Yeah ditto on that one. I know keeping them ramped up to 4.2 volts shortens their lives, but I’m not really concerned about a shelf life shortened by a couple hundred full charges. No big deal for me. I’ll just get some more. Wink

Every Home Depot in OC and LA (while I’m down here) seems to have 2-3 packs. It’s not like they’re hard to find for me.

Even when I’m in DV, the nearest HD always seem to have 2-3 packs also every time I visit every coupla weeks.

Although I am letting a couple boxes sit fallow for maybe 6 months and see how far they really do drop in retained voltage.
